  • Carboxylic Acid
    • -COOH
    • Solubility
      • Carboxylic acid are polar molecule
        • O is more electronegative than C atom
          • so are soluble in water and form hydrogen bond
    • Dissociation
      • Carboxylic acids are weak acids
        • So they  partially dissociate in water to from a carboxylate ion and H+ ion.
    • Reactions
      • Carboxylic acid and reactive metals to from salt and hydrogen gas.
      • Carboxylic acid and carbonate to from salt, carbon dioxide and water.
      • Carboxylic acid and bases ( metal oxides and hydroxides) to form a salt and water.
