Sodium triocarbonate (IV) is hydrolyzed in water.
" When sodium carbonate is added to water, it hydrolyses to give sodium bicarbonate and sodium hydroxide (a strong base). As a result, the solution becomes alkaline. ... This is because the liberated metals react with water."
Alkaline: of, relating to, containing, or having the properties of an alkali or alkali metal : basic especially, of a solution (water is a solution).
I hope this answers your question! Let me know if it doesn't!
ITS IS THE PROCESS OF DECOMPOSITION REACTION.
HOPE IT HELPS :)
