Hexanoic acid is only slightly soluble in water but is readily soluble (with stirring and shaking) in both 0.6 M NaHCO3 and 2.5 M NaOH.
give a brief explanation of the reaction for each
please help...thanksssss

  • Chemistry -

    An acid + base = salt + water.
    NaOH forms the Na salt as does NaHCO3.
    RCOOH + HONa ==> RCOONa + HOH.
