How does water react with ammonia?
« on: April 22, 2004, 10:27:40 PM »
Ammonia reacts with water as:

NH3 (1) + H20 (1) =NH4+ (aq) + OH (aq)

then how does water react to:

Primary amine
Secondary amine
Tertiary amine

Replace the NH3 with RNH2 and have a similar setup.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

So would this be correct:

Primary amine reaction to water

  RNH2 +H20 (1) = NH4+ (aq) + OH (aq)
Secondary amine reaction to water

R2NH + H20 91) = NH4+ (aq) + OH (aq)

Tertiary amine reaction to water

R3N + H20 (1) = NH 4+ (aq) + OH (aq)
