Dear suthar,

Sodium carbonate is a sodium salt  of carbonic acid. It most commonly occurs as a crystalline  heptahydrate, which readily effloresces to form a white powder, the monohydrate; and is domestically well known for its everyday use as a water softener. It has a cooling alkaline taste, and can be extracted from the ashes of many plants . It is synthetically produced in large quantities from table salt in a process known as the Solvay process.
