  • question_answer Carboxylic acids are easily ionised. The main reason of this statement [UPSEAT 1999]

    A) Absence of a-hydrogen

    B) Resonance stabilisation of carboxylate ion

    C) Reactivity of a-hydrogen

    D) Hydrogen bond

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

               Carboxylic acids are easily ionized because there is resonance in carboxylate ion due to p- electron shifting so \[{{H}^{+}}\] get ionised very easily.
