- n. In chem., a mixture of caustic soda and quicklime, used chiefly for nitrogen determinations in organic analysis.
“Up until 1998, Pyrex was also made from borosilicate glass, but is now made with soda-lime glass, a glass that is already used in the manufacture of many food and beverage products, as well as for windows.”
“Roman glassware provides some of the best available evidence that types of soda-lime glass are not fluid, even after nearly 2000 years.”
“Usually there were other impurities which made it softer than modern soda-lime glass.”
“In the case of modern soda-lime glass, a quick cooling will produce a glass transition at about 550° C.”
“It may be based on boro-silicate or soda-lime glass with other metallic oxides added to improve its thermal and optical properties.”
“~ Methane is prepared in the laboratory by heating sodium or calcium acetate with soda-lime.”
“Equal weights of fused sodium acetate and soda-lime are thoroughly dried, then mixed and placed in a good-sized, hard-glass test tube fitted with a one-holed stopper and delivery tube.”
“I did think of killing it, and, on the whole, I rather wish that I had at any rate attempted slaughter, -- there were dozens of things, lying ready to my hand, any one of which would have severely tried its constitution; -- but, on the spur of the moment, the only method of taking it alive which occurred to me, was to pop over it a big tin canister which had contained soda-lime.”
“The method of determining the water-vapor and carbon dioxide in the residual air is extremely simple, in that a definite volume of air is caused to pass over sulphuric acid and soda-lime contained in U-tubes.”
“However, the important point to be noted is that whatever fluctuations in composition of the residual air were noted by the soda-lime method, similar fluctuations of a corresponding size were recorded by the volumetric analysis with the Sondén apparatus.”
