    How do i write the product of a substance when one of the reactants is already branched e.g

    2-methylpropanoyl chloride with water

    i know the product of this will be an carboxylic acid, but how do i incorporate the branched chain.

    this also

    e) 2-methylpropanoic acid with sodium carbonate


    how do i predict where the branched chain will be?

    many thanks.

    It's only the functional group that changes in the reaction. All of the branching remains the same..

    -COCl becomes -COOH

    everything else unchanged...
