Sodium Carbonate Peroxide is a chemical, an adduct of sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide (a perhydrate), with formula 2 Na2CO3 · 3 H2O2. It is a colorless, crystalline, hygroscopic and water-soluble solid. It is used in some eco-friendly cleaning products and as a laboratory source of anhydrous hydrogen peroxide.
- Sodium carbonate peroxide breaks down into sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide acts as a bleach, and as an anti-microbial agent. The high alkalinity of the sodium carbonate boosts the bleaching effect of hydrogen peroxide.
- An adduct of Sodium Carbonate and Hydrogen Peroxide, it is used as a source of free (anhydrous) percarbonate which acts as a ‘bleach’ by removing colour pigments, soils and stains. Its is efficient, safe and economical, non-toxic, environmentally safe, biodegradable, and leaves no harmful by-products or residues which can harm the environment.
- Low hazard for health. Mineral derived, biodegradable and suitable for Greywater and septic tanks.
- Peroxy sodium carbonate, Sodium percarbonate
