Process of making Trisodium Citrate Dihydrate (referencing)
A method for producing Trisodium Citrate Dihydrate which comprises (1) adjusting a citric acid fermentation broth obtained by using a hydrocarbon as the principal carbon source for the culture medium to a pH from 9 to 13 inclusive with sodium hydroxide, sodium carbonate or sodium hydrogen carbonate, (2) removing the insolubles from the resultant broth, (3) concentrating the resultant fluid while maintaining the fluid at a pH from 10 to 13 inclusive with sodium hydroxide, sodium carbonate or sodium hydrogen. Sodium cirtate is soluble in water,but insoluble in ethanol. carbonate, and at a temperature of 50° to 65°C to precipitate Sodium Citrate dihydrate crystals and (4) recovering the thus formed crystals from the fluid. Cirtate Sodium will dissolve in water but insoluble in ethanol. It is used as a preservative, the substance thing, adjust the pH in the food industry and beverage industry.
