Kuffel, George C. (1923) The production of caustic soda solution from trona. Bachelor's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-02242005-113025
This problem concerns itself with the possibility of producing a reasonably pure concentrated caustic soda solution using trona as a starting material. It involves a carbonation process, purification of raw material and causticization with lime. Since soda ash costs a little less than three times what trona costs, the process has good commercial possibilities.
