Chemical structure of Sodium Percarbonate[Na2H3CO6]

Post by Dhamnekar Winod »

What is the chemical structure of Sodium percarbonate\([Na_2CO_3.1.5 H_2O_2]\)?

I want to know whether in the chemical structure of sodium percarbonate given in the following link, are \(H_2O_2\) molecules connected to \(Na_2CO_3\) molecules through hydrogen bonding?

If they are connected through hydrogen bonding, how many hydrogen bonds are there?

My answer is yes. They are connected through hydrogen bonding.5 hydrogen bonds are present. Is it correct?

Sodium percarbonate is an adduct of Hydrogenperoxide to sodium carbonate. There are 2 sodium carbonate molecules connected to 3 Hydrogenperoxide.
It is comparable to salts containing crystall water like CuSO4 x 5 H2O

Hello,
So, 5 hydrogen bonds are present in the \(2Na_2CO_3.3H_2O_2\). Isn't it?

I think we have 6 hydrogen bond. 6 H from H2O2 and 6 O from 2 carbonates.
