Question

IN the Solvay process, can we obtain sodium carbonate directly by treating the solution containing (NH4)2CO3 with sodium chloride? Explain.
 


Solution

No, it is not.

(NH4)2CO3 reacts with NaCl as


(NH4)2CO3+2NaClNa2CO3+2NH4Cl


 Because the products obtained Na2CO3 and NH4Cl  are highly soluble and the equilibrium will not shift in forward direction.
That's Why in the Solvay process, we cannot obtain sodium carbonate directly by treating the solution containing (NH4)2CO3 with sodium chloride.
