What would happen if one omitted Sodium Sulfite from d-23?
Would it work under these conditions?
Most likely not. Don't forget that sulfuric acid is a weak acid (especially with regard to its second proton), therefore Sodium Sulfite is mildly alkaline. If you leave out the sulfite, you will have to add at least something to compensate for this.
Trying to be the best of whatever I am, even if what I am is no good.
