Action of sodium hydroxide on aluminum sheet

This is cool! There are actually two reactions involved in reacting aluminum metal in sodium hydroxide. You see, aluminum is a VERY reactive metal. It forms a thin oxide coating (Al2O3) almost instantly on exposure to air and that coating prev...

Apr 21, 2014 · (Photo: Sodium Hydroxide 6mol Corrosive Lab Chemicals by Maticulous) What Is Sodium Hydroxide and how is it Used? Sodium hydroxide is an odorless, inorganic compound that serves as a metallic base for many types of chemicals, particularly in the paper and textiles industries, food processing, soaps, detergents and cleaners.

Sodium aluminate is also formed by the action of sodium hydroxide on elemental aluminium which is an amphoteric metal. The reaction is highly exothermic once established and is accompanied by the rapid evolution of hydrogen gas.
