what compound would form if acetyl salicylic and sodium hydroxide are reacted?

  • organic chemistry -

    As with most acid-base reactions, acid+base = salt + water

    Take aspirin, replace one H with Na and you are left with a salt and H2O.

  • organic chemistry -

    I agree that the Na salt will be formed; however, I think an ester reacts with NaOH and hydrolyzes to form the Na salts of salicylic acid and acetic acid in this case..
