    Hello TSR,

    Carboxylic Acid consists of the functional group "carboxyl group"?

    pretty sure, but i've been wrong before =[

    in an exam, i think you'll be able to get away with carboxylic acid as a "group" that's what it said on the mark schemes for my a levels anyway, dunno what your mark schemes are like

    Carboxyl is the carboxylic acid group as a whole (COOH). It contains a hydroxyl (OH) group and a corbonyl group (C=O).
