KOH 50% preparation
Hi all, I'm preparing water-based 50% KOH, but the pallet KOH start to undissolved in water at 30%. Even though i stop adding the KOH pallet and let it stir, it also undissolved. Anyone have idea on this?
Re: Correlating density and melting point
Thank you David and Richard - I forgot to come back on this one. V interesting re sulfur - I'm sure that there muat be other examples of this with different morphological states. I guess re the dichloroethenes, it must be the case then that the cis and trans liquids indeed differ in their short range order and the greater entropy change of fusion for cis must explain this (if relatively less order exists in the solid state vs liquid compared to trans) ... and/or as you suggest, the greater cis density means a lower enthalpy of fusion, due to particles not being separated as far apart on melting. Thanks again all!
