What happens when magnesium is added to Maleic and Fumaric acid? What gas is released from this reaction? I was also wondering if their are any differences between how each acid reacts with the magnesium because one is cis and the other trans.
What happens when sodium carbonate is added to each of these acids? what gas is released and are their differences because one is cis and the other is trans?
thanks for any help its appreciated

    I assume it is H2 gas released when reacting with Mg metal and CO2 released when reacting with Na2CO3. I know of no differences in these reactions because one is cis and one trans.

    I think with Mg hydrogen is released because I did pop test and it pop the sound during our experiment.with Nodium carbonate carbon dioxide gas is given of as bi products gas.
