Preparation of Sodium Hydroxide is an essential industry practice. Sodium Hydroxide, or NaOH, is a strong alkali manufactured by electrolysis of brine (NaCl – common salt) solution. You must have seen the solid white crystals of sodium hydroxide in the labs. You must have felt the crystal being slippery to the touch (hence saponification – manufacture of soap). NaOH reacts with the skin’s natural oils.
You can learn about the manufacturing process of sodium hydroxide through explanatory videos available on MSVgo.
