All weak inorganic acids ionize reversibly or in equilibrium reactions. This is why they ionize less than 100%. CH 3 COOH – structure of acetic acid Aqueous Solutions: An Introduction Correct chemical symbolism for equilibrium reactions Aqueous Solutions: An Introduction Strong Bases, Insoluble Bases, and Weak Bases Characteristic of common inorganic bases is that they produce OH- ions in solution. Aqueous Solutions: An Introduction Common Strong Bases Formula Name 1. LiOH lithium hydroxide 2. NaOH sodium hydroxide

Ba(OH) 2 barium hydroxide Notice that they are all hydroxides of IA and IIA metals Aqueous Solutions: An Introduction Similarly to strong acids, strong bases ionize 100% in water. Aqueous Solutions: An Introduction Insoluble or sparingly soluble bases Ionic compounds that are insoluble in water, consequently, not very basic....
