Products of this reactions?!?

1.I can't seem to get an equation for this reaction.Potassium Biphthlate + Sodium Hydroxide gives me what? Both are dissolved in water. Need to figure out the equation to standardize the sodium hydroxide.

NaOH + KHC8H4O4 -->


All are aqueous.

This is an acid base reaction. One of the products is water - where do the H's come from?

KHC8H4O4 is a dicarboxylic acid. It loses two protons.

KHC8H4O4 + 2OH --> 2H2O + KHC8H2O4

Nope. KHC8H4O4 is a dicarboxylic acid with one of the acidic protons having been replaced by the potassium. One acidic proton left...
