Industrial production is produced in powder form or in the form of granules. Upon contact with air, the crystals melt because they interact with carbon dioxide and moisture. Sodium hydroxide enters into a very violent exothermic reaction with water, forming a strongly alkaline solution. It is also well soluble in glycerol, methyl and ethyl alcohols and not at all soluble in organic substances: acetone and diethyl ether. Sodium alkali is a very reactive substance that actively reacts with acids, including organic acids (for example, acetic acid), oxides, salts, metals and non-metals, halogens, ethers, amides, polyatomic alcohols. When interacting with metals that have a high electrochemical potential (aluminum, zinc, titanium) in the presence of water, the metals displace hydrogen. Sodium hydroxide has a corrosive effect on aluminum alloys, carbon steel and other metals.
