Why is common salt solution added to the saponification mixture?
Asked by Simran K | 23rd Feb, 2014, 01:19: PM
After the saponofication process is complete, the soap is precipitated as salt of sodium.
The product of saponification is a carboxylate which is a salt.
Thus, to precipitate the soap, the common salt solution is added to the saponification mixture.
