Homework Help: chem

Posted by Jason on Tuesday, October 28, 2008 at 10:51am.

K2CO3 is an excellent drying agent for some classes of organic compounds. would it be a better choice for an acid (RCO2H)or an amine(RNH2)? why?

i know this is RNH2. could it be explained that potassium carbonate itself is basic so it will make water and a salt if mixed with acid. would this work as an explaination?
