I believe it's 200 Celsius, which is essentially 400 Fahrenheit. However, some people use a cooler temperature, just for a longer time. And, one the sodium carbonate is recovered, it immediately starts picking up water from the air. Placing it in a desiccator is the best bet for keeping from converting to the bicarbonate.

Our most popular free printable periodic table. You can download it, print it, mark it up for studying, and print more!
This periodic table wallpaper has a muted color scheme to show the element families. Each cell contains the element's number, symbol, name and mass.

Use color element tiles to write names and messages and make chemistry-themed posters. This updated version also includes a zip file so you can get all the elements at once.

As far a i know Lithium does not react with potassium hydroxide.  So Li(s) + KOH(aq) --> no reaction.  am i correct? If yes, why is this.

I love the sugar free candies (and don't suffer the nasty digestive side effect), but they stall weight loss and make me crave carbs. How about you?
