Question

Carboxylic acids are easily ionised. The main reason of this statement :
  1. Reactivity of α-hydrogen
  2. Hydrogen bond
  3. Resonance stabilisation of carboxylate ion
  4. Absence of α-hydrogen


Solution

The correct option is C Resonance stabilisation of carboxylate ion
Carboxylic acids are easily ionized because there is resonance in carboxylate ion due to p- electron of oxygen atom shifting. So, H+ gets ionised very easily.
