Guanidinium bicarbonate (or GdmHCO3) is a colorless organic salt, with the formula C(NH2)3HCO3.
Guanidinium bicarbonate reacts with acids to form guanidinium salts and releasing carbon dioxide.
Guanidinium bicarbonate is a white solid.
Guanidinium bicarbonate is sold by some chemical suppliers.
Guanidinium bicarbonate can be prepared by bubbling carbon dioxide in a solution of guanidine freebase or guanidinium carbonate.
Leaving solutions of guanidinium bicarbonate in open air will cause them to absorb more carbon dioxide, resulting in guanidinium bicarbonate.
- Make guanidine salts.
Guanidinium bicarbonate has low toxicity, though it should be handled with care.
In closed, air-tight containers.
No special disposal is required.
