Hi this is regarding my earlier post as to whether H2SO4 is a carboxylic acid

If it is not a carboxylic acid, what can it be?

  • chemistry -

    Is it possible Sulfuric Acid?

  • chemistry -

    No, H2SO4 definitely is not a carboxylic acid. Carboxylic acids are organic acids with the functional group of -COOH usually written as RCOOH. where R stands for anything else attached. H2SO4 is called a mineral acid. Other mineral acids are hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, etc. Mineral acids range from the very strong (HNO3) to the very weak (boric acid).

  • chemistry -

    Of the follwoing options, what is a mineral acid?

    alkane alkene
    alkyl halide
    secondary alcohol
    tertiary alcohol

  • chemistry -

    none of the above.

  • chemistry -

    a mineral acid is none of those. Have you looked up those terms?

  • chemistry -

    Sorry there are more options

    Primary amine
    Secondary amine
    Tertiary amine

    I have looked up all terms

  • chemistry -

    none of those either.
