Homework Help: Group 2 hydroxides question

  1. Jul 1, 2007 #1
    The question is:

    For the hydroxide compounds of Group 2, state and explain the trend in reaction with water and classification.

    Iv done quite a bit of searching on the topic but havent found much. On wiki it mentions the hydrolysis of metal hydroxides but doesnt give any info on it.

    can anyone help me out?

    Are you sure that you understood the question clearly? I wouldn't consider that Group II hydroxides react with water but are dissociated by them to varying degrees. Could this be what the question asks?

    you must be right, i cant find any info on it. reaction is a bit misleading.
