write and equation for the reaction of triethylamine and water. does the eqilibrium go to the right or left.

so far what I have is C6H15N + H2O

but I'm not sure of the products

  • chemistry -

    Triethyl amine is a base; therefore, it accepts a proton (from H2O) which releases the OH^-
    (CH3CH2)3N + HOH ==> (CH3CH2)3NH^+ + OH^-
