During a reaction I use sodium hydroxide and create sodium silicate as a by-product.
I am curious if there is a way to recycle that sodium silicate into sodium hydroxide?
I am not a chemist, just have to use chemistry and I love it.
My best guess is to use Hydrogen Peroxide and Heat.
or Hydrogen gas.
or maybe even Aqua Ammonia...
For any reaction I have abundant electricity available, to create heat.
I have thought about this for months and stuck in the do-nothing phase until I can get some help from experts and see the reaction on paper.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
