I am studying chemistry and have been struggling with working out whether beryllium can actually form a hydroxide as my notes and 'internet searching' do not seem to match up, with lots of contradicting info.
I was under the impression that beryllium oxide does react with water to form Be(OH)2, but I have read that this is not the case; which I can only deduce from the oxidation layer formed on the surface of Be in water?
Can someone point me in the right direction to fully understand the process?
Appreciate any help,
