Chemically, calcium hydroxide is a moderately strong base, though not so strong as sodium hydroxide.
This calcium hydroxide is a substance which is very caustic, and care must be exercised in handling it.
calcium hydroxide on continued action removes sulphur from the hair, causing it to become brittle.
Could a solution of sodium hydroxide be substituted for the solution of calcium hydroxide in testing for carbon dioxide?
The calcium hydroxide is added first to precipitate all the acid carbonates.
Such waters are softened on a commercial scale by the addition of the proper quantities of calcium hydroxide and sodium carbonate.
Chlorine is passed into hot solutions of calcium hydroxide, a compound which is very cheap.
Could barium hydroxide be used in place of calcium hydroxide in testing for carbon dioxide?
C contains a solution of calcium hydroxide to show that the carbon dioxide is completely removed.
(a) In the older process, still in extensive use, sodium carbonate is treated with calcium hydroxide suspended in water.
