I need to write the equation for the neutralization reaction of NaOH and nicotinic acid (C5H4NCOOH). Here is my attempt:

C5H4NCOOH + NaOH → C5H4NCOONa + H2O

First of all, is the formula for nicotinic acid correct? I am finding mixed answers when I search it on the internet.

Secondly, have I written the reaction correctly?

Please help!
