Re: Sodium Bi...

Re: the Na biphosphate

I too looked up this in my edition of the Merk but could not find
What I found was Na bicarbonate, sodium bifloride, sodium
bisulfate etc.
Using the paleo nomenclature each compound has one H ion. So the
compounds above have the formulas as following: Na HCO3, Na HF2,
Na HSO4. Therefore sodium biphosphate will be Na2 HPO4.

BTW I used the 11th ed Merck.
