Question and answer
explain why carboxylic acid are more soluble in water than alcohol
Alcohols, have one polar O-H group which forms hydrogen bonds with water. Carboxylic acids have two extremely polar ends, one O-H (like the alcohol) BUT also have the C=O bond, [ where the O is very electronegative and can also form hydrogen bonds. Carboxylic acid functional groups = can form more extensive hydrogen bonds with the water = more soluble. ]
