which of the following could be used to dissolve a carboxylic acid into the aqueous phase?

a)MgSO4
b)1.5 M HCl
c)1.0 M NaHCO3
d)2.0 M Na2SO4
e)saturated NaCl

I'm leaning towards choice e because you can have an aqueous solution of sodium salt and a carboxylic acid.

    I think the answer is c. The RCOOH group (an acid) reacts with NaHCO3 (a base) to form the sodium salt of the acid (+ CO2 and H2O). (
