percarbonate is a chemical, an adduct of sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide (a perhydrate), with formula 2Na2CO3 · 3H2O2. It is a colorless, crystalline, hygroscopic and water-soluble
solid. It is used in some eco-friendly cleaning
products and as a laboratory source of anhydrous hydrogen
This product contains the carbonate anion,
and should not be confused with sodium peroxocarbonate Na2CO4 or peroxodicarbonate Na2C2O6,
which contain different anions.
As an oxidizing agent,
sodium percarbonate is an ingredient in a number of home and laundry cleaning products, including
non-chlorine bleach products such as OxiClean, Tide laundry detergent, and Vanish. Dissolved in water, it yields a
mixture of hydrogen peroxide (which eventually decomposes to water and oxygen) and sodium carbonate ("soda ash").
2Na2CO3 + 3H2O2
Sodium percarbonate can be used in organic synthesis as a convenient source
of anhydrous H2O2, in particular in solvents that cannot
dissolve the carbonate but can leach the H2O2 out of
