Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by anonymous on Monday, May 11, 2009 at 11:04pm.

1. What is the name of the ester formed from formic acid and methanol?
( I know formic acid equals methanoic acid(HCOOH) and we need to change "oic acid" to "-oate", but how about methanol? I had no ideas what to do with the alcohol...)


Do the words in brackets suit the statements below? If not, correct it.

2. The [carboxyl] end of a carboxylic acid is electron rich.
Is it wrong? Should I change it to "hydroxyl"?

3. The hydrogen atom in a carboxyl group is an [acidic] hydrogen.
I had no ideas what the statement is talking about....

Thanks in advance!
