Dissolution of beryllium hydroxide
« on: October 25, 2008, 10:04:56 AM »

I'm trying to figure out what the dissolution of beryllium hydroxide will produce. The scenario in question I'm trying to solve has beryllium hydroxide completely dissolved in a sufficient amount of water.

The reaction I have so far is:
Be(OH)2 + H2O :rarrow:  H3O+ + Be______

I'm not sure if the 2nd product is a Be2+ ion or a Be compound.

Could someone help me with the 2nd product of the above reaction?

Do most other metal hydroxides undergo the same reaction you've suggested?  Look into them.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.
