Hello, I have a hard time finding an answer to this question. Maybe someone can help me out here
Question: Is "H jumping" or autoionization present in pure ethanol and other organic solvents like it is in water? Are there any H+ present in pure ethanol? Can they get released if you apply some + voltage to the solution with an electrode? Also, if you put a carbohydrate (lets say some polar carbohydrate with few benzene rings) in pure ethanol and it gets dissolved, does that mean that H+ got released into the solution (from ...C-H on the ring for example)?
More specifically, is it possible that H+ got attached to ...C-C-O(-) part of the dissolved molecule in pure EtOH, if so --> where is it from?
