ACID/BASE HYDROLYSIS Acetate hydrolysis C An acetate ion removes a [H.sub.3]COO (aq) + proton from a water [H.sub.2]0 [right arrow] molecule, with some C[H.sub.3]COOH(aq) + OH difficulty, to form an (aq) acetic acid molecule and a hydroxide ion.
The increase in the basal space is consistent with a smaller anion (acetate ion chain length = 1.65 [Angstrom]) being replaced by larger n-HCn anions (chain lengths = 8.63 [Angstrom] for o-HCn; 8.64 [Angstrom] for m-HCn, and 9.11 [Angstrom] for p-HCn).
The absorption bands at 1636-1642 cm-1 in acetate complexes (i.e., Pb (II) and Ni (II) complexes) are assigned to the n(COO-)as asymmetric stretching vibrations of the acetate ion and also at 1263-1278 cm-1 in acetate complexes can be assigned to the n(COO-)s symmetric stretching vibrations of the acetate ion.
The acetate ions ([CH.sub.3][COO.sup.-], added as the pH buffer) were negatively charged.
