  2. Sodium sulfate (also known as sodium sulphate or sulfate of soda) is the inorganic compound with formula Na 2 SO 4 as well as several related hydrates. All forms are white solids that are highly soluble in water. With an annual production of 6 million tonnes, the decahydrate is a major commodity chemical product.

  3. Sodium sulphate ( Na2SO4) is the sodium salt of sulfuric acid. Anhydrous sulphate is a white crystalline solid also known as the mineral thenardite, while the decahydrate Na 2 SO 4 .10H 2 O has been known as Glauber’s salt or mirabilis. Na 2 SO 4 .7H 2 O is transformed to mirabilite when it is cooled.

  4. Sep 15, 2017 · What is the chemical formula of sodium sulfate? (1) Na2SO4 (2) Na2SO3 (3) NaSO4 (4) NaSO3 Answer and Explanation: Too write a chemical formula from a name, we must first determine whether the compound is ionic or covalent. Since sodium is a metal (on the left on periodic table), sodium sulfate must be an ionic compound.

    Apothecary Johann Rudolf Glauber was a German/Dutch chemist and he was the one who discovered sodium sulfate in 1625 in the spring waters of Austria. He discovered decahydrate of this chemical which is now called Glauber’s salt or mirabilis, its chemical formula is Na2SO4.10H2O. He named it sal mirabilis (miraculous salt) as it has medicinal values...

    Sodium sulfate is a very widely used chemical, and its average production rate is 5.5 to 6 million tons per year, which makes it apparent how much this chemical is used. Around2/3rds of this quantity is produced from mirabilis. The uses and names of this chemical change with the water of crystallization. There are primarily 3 forms: 1. Anhydrous – ...

    It completely dissociates upon dissolving in water. This statement can be proved using a double displacement reaction.  Na2SO4 + BaCl2 -> 2NaCl + BaSO4

    Glauber’s salt is used for tanning, dyeing, and for medicinal purposes.
    Glauber’s salt is also used in detergents and in the kraft processfor paper pulping.
    Na2SO4 is used in organic reactionsas a drying agent.
    It is also used as a fining agentin glass works to remove small air bubbles.
