Sodium Alginate occurs as a white to yellow-brown, fibrous or granular powder. It is the sodium salt of alginic acid. It dissolves in water to form a viscous, colloidal solution. It is insoluble in alcohol and in hydroalcoholic solutions in which the alcohol content is greater than about 30% by weight. It is insoluble in chloroform, in ether, and in acids having a pH lower than about 3.

Identification: -
A. Add 1 mL of calcium chloride to 5 mL of a 1:100 aqueous solution. A voluminous, gelatinous precipitate forms.
B. Add 1 mL of 2 N sulfuric acid to 10 mL of a 1:100 aqueous solution. A heavy, gelatinous precipitate forms.
C. Place about 5 mg of sample into a test tube, add 5 mL of water, 1 mL of a freshly prepared 1:100 naphtholresorcinol:ethanol solution, and 5 mL of hydrochloric acid. Heat the mixture to boiling, boil gently for about 3 min, and then cool to about 15C. Transfer the contents of the test tube to a 30-mL separator with the aid of 5 mL of water, and extract with 15 mL of isopropyl ether. Perform a blank determination and make any necessary correction. The isopropyl ether extract from the sample exhibits a deeper purple hue than that from the blank.
Assay: A sample yields not less than 18.0% and not more than 21.0% of carbon dioxide (CO2), corresponding to between 90.8% and 106.0% of Sodium Alginate (equiv wt 222.00).
Arsenic: Not more than 3 mg/kg.
Lead: Not more than 5 mg/kg.
Loss on Drying: Not more than 15.0%.

Sodium Alginate BP Grade
Ph Eur

Sodium alginate consists mainly of the sodium salt of alginic acid, which is a mixture of polyuronic acids [C6H8O6)n] composed of residues of D-mannuronic acid and L-guluronic acid. Sodium alginate is obtained mainly from algae belonging to the Phaeophyceae.

Appearance: White or pale yellowish-brown powder.
Solubility: Slowly soluble in water forming a viscous, colloidal solution, practically insoluble in ethanol (96 per cent).

A. Dissolve 0.2 g with shaking in 20 ml of water. To 5 ml of this solution add 1 ml of calcium chloride solution. A voluminous gelatinous mass is formed.
B. To 10 ml of the solution prepared in identification test A add 1 ml of dilute sulphuric acid. A gelatinous mass is formed.
C. To 5 mg add 5 ml of water, 1 ml of a freshly prepared 10 g/l solution of 1,3-dihydroxynaphthalene in ethanol (96 per cent) and 5 ml of hydrochloric acid. Boil for 3 min, cool, add 5 ml of water, and shake with 15 ml of di-isopropyl ether. Carry out a blank test. The upper layer obtained with the substance to be examined exhibits a deeper bluish-red colour than that obtained with the blank.
D. It complies with the test for sulphated ash. The residue obtained, dissolved in 2 ml of water, gives reaction (a) of sodium.

Solution S: Dissolve 0.10 g in water, with constant stirring, dilute to 30 ml with the same solvent and allow to stand for 1 h.
Appearance of solution: The solution is not more opalescent than reference and not more intensely coloured than intensity 6 of the range of reference solutions of the most appropriate colour.
Dilute 1 ml of solution S to 10 ml with water R.
Chlorides: Maximum 1.0 per cent.
Calcium: Maximum 1.50 per cent.
Heavy metals: Maximum 20 ppm.
Loss on drying: Maximum 15.0 per cent, determined on 0.1000 g by drying in an oven at 105C for 4 h.
Sulphated ash: 30.0 per cent to 36.0 per cent (dried substance), determined on 0.1000 g.
Microbial contamination: Total viable aerobic count not more than 103 micro-organisms per gram, determined by plate-count. It complies with the tests for Escherichia coli and Salmonella.

A jackal woke up early in the morning and went in to the plains. He looked at his long shadow in the rising morning sun and said to himself, "I must have a camel for my meal today".

He kept moving around till noon and it was getting hot and the jackal was tired. He was also hungry and thirsty. He looked at his small shadow in the mid-day sun. He murmered, "I was only joking about the camel, a mouse will do".
