Whats the reaction between boric acid and sodium bicarbonate?

Recommended Posts

So Pva and borax form a bond, when you convert the borax to boric acid it no longer has that bond.

If you add sodium bicarbonate than there is the same or a very similar bond almost like if the boric acid

got turned back into borax.   So whats the reaction with boric acid and sodium bicarbonate?

Borax is sodium borate so I would assume that mixing sodium bicarbonate and boric acid would give you sodium borate = borax (plus CO2).

I think that would happen if you added heat since "Sodium Borate + Heat + Sodium Bicarbonate" Reacts only with heat

although it would make sence but you could be wrong, If anyone knows for sure please reply.
