This video lecture from Carboxylic Acids (F.Sc. second year Chemistry) covers the reactions of carboxylic acids involving the hydrogen atom of the carboxyl- group. The reaction with reactive metals like sodium produces hydrogen (as with water) and a metal-carboxylate salt. Carbonates and bicarbonates also produce metal-carboxylate salts along with carbon dioxide gas. Bases react with carboxylic acids forming water and metal-carboxylate salt in a neutralization reaction. Find more e-learning material and educational video lectures in Urdu at maktab.pk.
