NaOH + aspirin
« on: April 21, 2004, 10:36:13 PM »
Does anyone know what NaOH + aspirin (C9H8O4) is?  I have the hardest time balancing equations!  Thanks!

It should just make the salt. + water

1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.

I can't figure out what the salt would be.  Most salts I've seen are chlorides (NaCL, BaCl2, CaCl2, etc.)  Is this one really weird?  Thanks a bunch!

Aspirin is acetylsalicylic acid.  The salt is sodium acetylsalicate. (I think I got the spelling right...)
