Instant Hot Ice Using Sodium Acetate


Instant Hot Ice Using Sodium Acetate
When sodium acetate trihydrate crystals are heated, they melt. When this melt cools, it gives a supersaturated solution of sodium acetate in water. By tapping the solution, a nucleation center is formed and causes the solution to crystallize into a solid.
