Trioxocarbonates (IV)

Trioxocarbonate (iv) are salts derived from trioxocarbonate (iv) acid when it reacts with metals and metallic oxides.

All trioxocarbonate (iv) salts of Sodium (Na), Potassium (K) and Ammonium(NH4+) are soluble while all others are insoluble.

Note: All trioxocarbonate (iv) salts decompose to release CO2 when heated except that of Na and K.

Preparation of Soluble Trioxocarbonate (IV)

Soluble trioxocarbonate (iv) are prepared by bubbling carbon (iv) oxide through a solution of the corresponding alkali.

2KOH (aq) + CO2(g)   →   K2CO3(aq)  +   H2O(l)

It can also be prepared by heating the corresponding hydrogen trioxocarbonate (iv).
