prolonging reaction of sodium acetate and water

Postby mimi2045 » Sat Nov 17, 2018 12:53 pm


Just wondering how the exothermic of sodium acetate that has been supersaturated in water (with use of a catalyst) used in hadn't warmers can be extended. Currently only gives out heat for around 1hr, was wondering what could be done to increase this time.
