Review of Weak Bases

Postby ian_haliburton_1f » Thu Jan 17, 2019 3:41 pm

Now that we are doing acid-base equilibrium, I was specifically wondering if anyone had a concise set of guidelines for identifying a weak base compared to a strong base as I am particularly foggy in my memory of that.

Weak bases tend to have Kb values that are less than 10-3. Strong bases tend to have Kb values that are more than 10-3.

Apart from other guidelines, a strong base usually has (OH) in the molecular formula, such as LiOH and KOH.
