An Arabic word. Protox'ide of sodium, (F.) Soude, is obtained by adding caustic lime to a solution of carbonate of soda. The soda in solution may be obtained by evaporation as hydrate of soda. Its action is like that of potassa; but it is not officinal. Soda impuâ€™ra, Barilla, Barig'lia, Baril'lor, Soda Hispan'ica, Ana'tron, Natron, Ana'ton, Nitrum Antiquo'rum, Kelp, Aphroni'trum, Sal alkaliâ€™nus fixus fos'silis, Carâ€™bonas Sodce im'purus, Subcar'bonas Sodae impu'ra, Anachron. The mineral alkali is obtained from several sources; - naturally, in Egypt: artificially, from the incineration of marine plants; and from the decomposition of sulphate of soda, &c. It is principally, however, derived from plants growing on the sea-coast; - as the Salsoâ€™la sati'va, S. soda, S. tragus, Salicor'nia herba'cea, Salicornia Arub'ica, &c. The Barilla ashes are from the ashes of the Salicor'nia Europae'a: the Kelp, Soude de Varecq, from the Fucus vesiculo'sus and other varieties ;-the Turkey Barilla, Roquette, Cendre du Levant, Rochet'ta Alexandri'na, from the Mesembryan'themum Copâ€™ticum; - the Al'icant Barilla, Soda Alicantiâ€™na seu Alonen'sis, from the Mesembryan'themum nodiflo'rum ;-and the Carthageâ€™na Barilla, from the Salicor'nia and Salsoâ€™la. Impure subcarbonate of soda, (F.) Soude du commerce, consists of subcarbonate of soda, potash, chloride of sodium, clay and other earthy substances. It is chiefly used for preparing the pure subcarbonate.

Caustic s., sodium hydroxid; a hard, white or grayish, opaque solid, of fibrous texture, melting just below a red heat, deliquescent in moist air, efflorescent in dry air, and very soluble in alcohol, less soluble in water. It is a strongly alkaline base, of very acrid and caustic taste. From its great affinity for water, it acts as a caustic, but is less diffusive in its action than caustic potash.
