Thank you so much and please excuse my disorientation in the forum!
The information you are providing is very interesting,but I still feel confused (probably I'm not asking the question properly and clearly-sorry about that!).
So, if I have a silicate (i.e. orthosilicate Titanite – CaTiSiO5 ) in an alkaline solution in room temperature,will it react even microscopically?
Does this depend on whether the base is strong or weak,does it depend on temperature (meaning the occurrence of a reaction,even in molecular level.)?
