Strong Acid Names

Postby Mrudula Akkinepally » Thu Dec 10, 2020 3:13 am

I went to A UA session yesterday where we were given a really useful mneumonic to remember the names of the strong acids.

SO I Brought NO CLean ClOthes.

SO: H2SO4
I: HI
Br: HBr
NO: HNO3
Cl: HCL
ClO: HClO4 and HClO3

I hope it helps!! :))

That's a great mneumonic,. Heads up that HClO3 is also a strong acid; you left that out in the list.

This is a great tip! Has anyone come up with one for strong bases?

I just saw this!! But I think if it has an OH in there its a strong base. And if it has an N with a lone pair then its weak.
