What is Sodium Methanolate?

Sodium methoxide is dissolved in ether to form a suspension, which is decomposed into methanol and sodium hydroxide in the presence of water: CH3ONa+H2O→CH3OH+NaOH Sodium methoxide products have two forms: solid and liquid, the solid is pure sodium methoxide, and the liquid is methanol Methanol solution of sodium, the content of sodium methoxide is 27.5~31%. Liquid sodium methoxide is a colorless or slightly yellow viscous liquid, sensitive to oxygen, flammable and explosive. Very easy to absorb moisture. Soluble in methanol and ethanol, decomposed into methanol and sodium hydroxide in case of water, and decomposed in the air above 126.6 ℃. Insoluble in benzene and toluene. Strong irritant and extremely corrosive. Solid sodium methoxide is a colorless amorphous powder, sensitive to oxygen, flammable, soluble in methanol and ethanol, decomposed into methanol and sodium hydroxide in the presence of water, and decomposed in the air above 126.6 ℃.

Sodium Methanolate Uses

  1. Sodium methoxide is mainly used as a condensing agent, a strong base catalyst and a methoxylation agent to change the fat structure and make it suitable for margarine and so on. It must be removed in the final food. It is also used in the preparation of vitamins B1 and A, sulfadiazine and other drugs, and a small amount is used in the production of pesticides. Also used as analytical reagents.
  2. Sodium Methoxide is also widely used in fragrances, dyes and other industries. 
  3. Sodium Methoxide is mainly used as the raw material of medicine and pesticide, and also used in dyestuff and chemical fiber industry.
  4. Sodium methoxide can also be used in the manufacture of biodiesel. During storage, sodium methoxide is gradually decomposed and deteriorated by moisture in the air, so attention should be paid when using it.

Preparation Method of Sodium Methoxide

The production of liquid sodium methoxide is mainly divided into sodium method preparation and alkali method preparation. The process of preparing liquid sodium methoxide by the sodium method is simple, the investment is low, and the preparation process route is mature, so the sodium method preparation is the most important preparation method for preparing liquid sodium methoxide in my country. In the preparation process of the sodium method, although no water is generated, a large amount of impurities such as heavy metals, butter, and sodium chloride are produced in the preparation process, resulting in poor activity and poor quality of the product. Due to the poor quality of Guangpin, in order to ensure its production standard, a large amount of synthetic liquid sodium methoxide is needed, thereby increasing the production cost. In order to solve the above problems, the preparation of liquid sodium methoxide by alkaline method is gradually developed. However, in the process of preparing liquid sodium methoxide by alkali method, the reaction between sodium hydroxide and methanol will generate free alkali, and the reaction of generating free alkali is a reversible reaction. At the same time, there is a lot of sodium carbonate in industrially produced sodium hydroxide. Therefore, The free alkali content in the liquid sodium methoxide is relatively high and contains many impurities, and the prepared liquid sodium methoxide cannot reach the quality index in the industry, so it is not suitable for large-scale liquid sodium methoxide preparation.
