Sodium Sulfate

Sodium sulfate is the sodium salt of sulfuric acid, a by-product in the manufacturing of precipitated silicas and silicates.
Soduim sulfate is a white crystalline solid when anhydrous. The decahydrate (Na2SO4.10H2O) is known as Glauber's salt.

Sodium Sulfate Molecular Formula: Na2SO4

Sodium sulfate is chemically very stable, being unreactive toward most oxidising or reducing agents at normal temperatures.

The most common uses of sodium sulfate are:

  • Soaps and detergents. It is an important ingredient in powdered soaps
  • Textiles
  • Production of paper and paper pulp and glass
