Solid and Liquids in reaction equilibrium situations

Postby Noah Fox 1E » Thu Jan 10, 2019 3:35 pm

Water has a dynamic of producing hydroxide and hydronium ions forming H3O+ and OH-, which then can react to form H2O. Are there any examples of solids doing anything akin to this?

Water is the only thing that I know can possess this power, since it can act both as an acid and a base which is why it can form both hydroxide and hydronium ions. This also explains why it is such a powerful solvent.
