Sodium chloride is a white crystalline solid with a salty taste. It is the principal ingredient of common table salt and is used as a food seasoning and preservative, in pharmaceutical preparations, in the manufacture of glass and paper, as a de-icing agent on roads and sidewalks, and as an industrial solvent. It is also the raw material for the manufacture of hydrogen, chlorine and caustic soda (sodium hydroxide).

Molecular structure: NaCl consists of two oppositely charged ions – sodium ‘Na+’ and chloride ‘Cl-‘ arranged in an endlessly repeating giant three dimensional crystal lattice. The ions are held together by strong electrostatic forces of attraction. The ions are arranged in an interpenetrating face-centered cubic (fcc) cation lattice and the local octahedral geometry.

Solubility: Sodium chloride is soluble in water, glycerin and alcohol; it is insoluble in acetone and liquid ammonia. It is a good reagent in organic reactions. Sodium chloride can be electrolysed to produce hydrogen, chlorine and caustic soda by passing an electric current through it in the presence of a strong base such as sodium carbonate (sodium hydroxide).
