Solution: The hypochlorite ion, ClO-, acts as a weak base.Is ClO- a stronger or weaker base than hydroxylamine?

Solution: The hypochlorite ion, ClO-, acts as a weak base.Is ClO- a stronger or weaker base than hydroxylamine?

Problem

The hypochlorite ion, ClO-, acts as a weak base.

Is ClO- a stronger or weaker base than hydroxylamine?

Solution

We're being asked to determine if ClO- is a stronger or weaker base than hydroxylamine.

Recall: 

Strong Bases are strong electrolytes that completely dissociate into ions when dissolved in water. 

Weak bases are weak electrolytes that don’t completely ionize, but instead reach a state of equilibrium. 


Bases are characterized by THREE major features: 

  • they may possess metals
  • they may have a negative charge 
  • they may be a neutral or negative amines
