- TL;DR Summary
- When sodium acetate CH3COONa reacts with water does it form hydroxide ions, leaving the neutralised solution alklain?
symbolipoint said:Sodium acetate dissolved in water would if conc. is high enough, make the solution alkaline.
Some fading of precise knowledge has been happening the last several years. (That is, in my knowledge)Borek said:0.01M solution of sodium acetate has a calculated pH of 8.4, you don't need high concentrations for the effect to be easily observable.
