Sodium Chloride










General Information:


Structure:



CAS Number: 7647-14-5

Molecular Weight: 58.44 g/mol

Appearance: Colorless crystals

Chemical Formula: NaCl

Melting Point: 801 C


Saturated aqueous sodium chloride (NaCl) is called brine. Brine washes are very commonly used to help dry (remove water from) organic solvents after aqueous extractions.




Common Uses:


- Brine wash of organic solvents after aqueous work-ups.




Safety:


Sodium chloride is non-toxic. For example, sodium chloride is common 'table salt'.
