Theoretical inorganic chemistry pH of aqueous solutions of hypophosphites
Please tell me why there is no hydrolysis in aqueous solutions of hypophosphites of alkali and alkaline earth metals? H3PO2 is a weak acid
I've only seen such salts studying inorganic chemistry, specifically phosphorous properties. Quite uncommon substances
@chaoticgood Good reducing agents, unstable during storage therefore
@chaoticgood Chemical deposition of metal films from their salts on various surfaces
It's a pity that no one answered the question, but it is quite interesting
By the way, an interesting fact is that the H3PO2 and H3PO3 acidity constants are quite close and phosphites are hydrolyzed, unlike hypophosphites
pKa H3PO3= 1,51
pKa H3PO2= 1,23
@chaoticgood I don’t know, I’m already citing their data, and salts have different hydrolysis
@argentum Where did you find such information about the hydrolysis of hypophosphite salts of alkaline and alkaline earth metals?
You have given the acid constants, which do not quite reflect the degree of acid dissociation, namely their nature. Please give the dissociation constants of these acids.
@damiryagudin I didn’t understand you, acidity constants reflect their dissociation constants
