    Magnesium Nitrate + Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate -> Magnesium Hydrogen Carbonate + Sodium Nitrate?

    Is this salt metathesis true for hydrogen carbonates?

    NB I'm looking to make Magnesium Carbonate so if this is true I guess that decomposes into the carbonate anyways.

    Thanks
    Joshua

    I'm rusty on this but I think so, yes, because if I recall correctly Mg(HCO₃)₂ has limited solubility in water, so it will precipitate out, leaving Na⁺ and NO3⁻ ions in solution. But I'm open to correction.
