Is ethanol and acid or alkaline?
It is neutral.
alkaline KMNO4 will decolourise in ethanol but not in ethanoic acid Read More
When ethanol is added to alkaline KMno4 solution, the ethanol gets oxidised to ethanoic acid due to nascent oxygen. KMno4 is an oxidising agent. thus when we first add alkaline Kmno4 to ethanol, the pink colour of the Kmno4 vanishes, as it is being used up for the oxidation process. however. when all of the ethanol has been oxidised into ethanoic acid, and we keep adding Kmno4, the colour returns, as there is no more… Read More
Potassium manganate (I believe maganate may be a typo) should not cause any reaction with ethanol. It is an inorganic salt and is fairly unreactive. However, under alkaline (basic) conditions potassium permanganate is formed. This is a potent oxidant, and will readily oxidize ethanol to ethanoic acid (commonly called acetic acid, or vinegar).

In nature, something is either Alkaline, or Acid. Acid is treated with Alkaline, Alkaline is treated with Acid. Bee stings are Acid, therefore are treated with Alkaline. Wasps are Alkaline animals, and that is why they are treated with acid. Not all acids are dangerous you know ^_^ Read More
If you mean ethanoic acid then yes. Ethanol is organic but it is generally not considered an acid. Read More
It is alkaline. it is used for controlling acid reflux in body. Read More
No, an acid is an acid and an alkaline is alkaline. They are essentially opposites and will react with one another. The product depends on the specific reactants Read More
No, Acid is better than Alkaline, as Alkaline is much more harmful. Read More
p-aminobenzoic acid and ethanol in the presence of sulfuric acid yields benzocaine. Read More
Ethanol would react with citric acid, ethanol or ethyl alcohols are reactive when mixed with acids. Depending on the type of acid the reactions and products are different. Read More
Phenolphthalein is pinkish/purple in alkaline and clear in acid. Read More
It is alkaline because it is used to help neutralise the acid produced by the stomach. Read More
Acetic acid is a stronger acid. Ethanol is an alcohol which is slightly acidic but usually neutral in nature. Read More
