What happens when you mix C9H8O4(s) + HCl(l)?

    What happens when you mix C9H8O4(s) + HCl(l)? As in the chemical reaction. Does it dissolve, bubble?

    Help would much be appreciated, thanks!

    I think the C9H8O4 compound will absorb the HCl to become a new organic compound with a haloalkane group as well as a new OH group.

    Chemspider finds 264 compounds with a formula C9H8O4. That means technically there are 264 possible answers to the question.
