What is pH of methanol?
pH is generally taken to refer to aqueous solutions. The concept can be extended to other liquids. Pure dry methanol will dissociate: CH3OH <-> CH3O- + H+ What is difficult to find is the pKa of the equilibrium. In aqueous solution methanol has a reported pKA of 15.5. this indicates negligible dissociation- and essentially no effect on pH of water in the case of dilute solutions. ...

Can you determine pH of aqueous methanol solution?
Add 3ml of saturated KCl to 100 ml of methanol:Water mixture and then take the pH by using glass electrode. ...

What is the pH of hydrocarbons?
pH is defined as the negative log of the hydrogen ion concentration; concentration is usually expressed in moles per liter. The liter component is nearly always the universal solvent, water. When you add most hydrocarbons to water, it does not mix; it's immiscible. No hydrogen ions are formed, and the pH of the original water remains unchanged. However, some types of hydrocarbons DO have a hydrogen ion component when mixed with water. For example, consider methanol - CH3OH. The hydorogen attached to the...
