Sodium uranate or Yellow uranium oxide, a uranium compound with the chemical formula Na2O (UO3)2·6H2O is a yellow orange powder once used in pottery to produce ivory to yellow shades in glazes. It was also used in porcelain dentures to give them a fluorescence similar to that of natural teeth. It was added as a mix with cerium oxide. The uranium composed from 0.008 to 0.1% by weight uranium with an average of about 0.02%. The practice appears to have stopped in the late 1980s.

The alkaline process of milling uranium ores involves precipitating sodium uranate from the pregnant leaching solution to produce the semi-refined product referred to as yellowcake.

Sodium Uranate may be obtained in the amorphous form by heating together urano-uranic oxide and sodium chlorate; or by heating sodium uranyl acetate or carbonate. The crystalline form is produced by adding the green oxide in small quantities to fused sodium chloride, or by dissolving the amorphous form in fused sodium chloride, and allowing crystallization to take place. It yields reddish-yellow to greenish-yellow
