Between methanethiol and methanol (if both species remain PROTONATED), I think methanethiol is the better base (ie, it is easier to form CH3CH2SH2+ than to form CH3CH2OH2+) because the lone pairs on the O are closer to the nucleus (O is more electronegative than S), so the O lone pairs are less available to reach out and grab a proton (aka they are less basic).

Between the DEPROTONATED forms, methoxide (CH3CH2O-) is definitely more basic than methanethiolate (CH3CH2S-). ?Methanol has a higher pKa than methanethiol by about 5 pH units).

Why you are using methanol in Karl fischer titration?

Karl Fischer titration was developed by Karl Fischer who was a chemist. He used methanol, which is an alcohol, to ascertain the amount of water in a system that contains excess sulfur dioxide. The methanol reacts with sulfur dioxide and a base that causes an oxidation reaction that consumes water.

Why Oxalic acid is stonger than malonic acid?

A strong acid has a stabilized conjugate base. Oxalic acid is stronger than malonic acid because its conjugate base has much more resonance structures than malonic acid's conjugate base.

Is methanol an amino acid?

No, methanol is not an acid.It is an alcohol because its molecular structure contains alcoholic functional group,i.e, OH.While acids contains COOH functional group.

The definition of a strong acid relatively is the stability of the conjugate base after deprotonation. The equilibruim lies far to the right of methanol (CH3OH). CH3OH2+== CH3OH
