Best non-effervescent acid neutralizer
« on: June 01, 2019, 02:53:01 AM »
I'm currently dealing with an experiment that includes iron ions in acidic solutions. Baking soda works as usual except that the iron decides to foam up with the baking soda, creating a nice column of foam that gets everywhere during clean up. Any suggestions on any neutralizers that won't cause bubbling?

Baking soda plus acid will make the foam. What exactly are you trying to do? Can you not use baking soda?
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
