Answer:

Solubility rules holds that all carbonates are insoluble, save for those of the alkali metals. So, the answer is no.

Explanation:

As physical scientists we should look at the data. This source quotes the solubility as #0.0106# #g# per #100*mL# of water. So the stuff is pretty insoluble.

Of course, this presupposes a neutral #pH#. Bicarbonates, salts of #HCO_3^-# are very soluble.
