No Such Neutralization?

  1. Mar 12, 2009 #1
    Hi,

    I have a solution that contains potassium hydroxide and dodecanedioic acid. I am trying to figure out what my products will be but I can't seem to find anything real that dodecanedioic acid would become.

    Any insights?

    A dodecanedioate.

    This is just a dicarboxylic acid.

    Which would mean it would be either dodecanedioic acid, potassium salt or dodecanedioic acid, dipotassium salt. I cannot find CAS numbers for either of these species. In order to use either of those for my purpose I need to have a CAS number.

    So it's not real if it doesn't have a CAS number, now?

    Exactly my thoughts, I just spared r&d that comment :rofl:

    Dodecanodioate, potassium dodecanoate has a relatively easy to find CAS number (10124-65-9).
