Main Question or Discussion Point

I wanted to make strontium acetate but it didn't get hot (like when I mix calcium hydroxide with acetic acid). Does that mean it didn't work?

If it works, the solid should disappear and you should see carbon dioxide bubbles. And it doesn't have to get hot - even if the reaction is exothermic, whether the mixture gets hot or not depends on how fast the reaction is.

Actually, the neutralization of acids with carbonates is an endothermic reaction, unlike neutralization with hydroxides.
