Acid and Bases

Postby 504999222 » Mon Jan 27, 2020 6:27 pm

Let's begin with the hydroxide of a light, silvery white metal; one that often reminds me of German lye rolls. With a colossal global demand, this basic compound finds vast use in petroleum drilling and in the removal of sulphurous impurities from sub grade crude oil. In solution form, it is employed for separating lignin from cellulose fibres in wood pulping for manufacturing paper. Vital to soap production, it is widely used as "caustic" in industries during cleaning processes. Which of the following compounds am I describing?

Potassium hydroxide
Magnesium hydroxide
Lithium hydroxide
Sodium hydroxide
