Na2O2 + CH3NO2 =?????

Post by Dhamnekar Winod »

I know reactants and products of the following chemical reaction

\(3Na_2O_2 + CH_3NO_2 + 2H_2O \leftrightarrow HNO_3 + CO + 6NaOH \)

I want to know the product of the following reaction.

\(Na_2O_2 + CH_3NO_2 =???\)

Would any member of chemistry forum answer my question correctly?
Any science consists of the following process. 1) See 2)Hear 3)Smell,if needed 4)Taste, if needed 5)Think 6)Understand 7)Inference 8)Take decision [Believe or disbelieve, useful or useless, true or false, cause or effect, any other criteria]

The first reaction is already wrong. There cannot in the same time a product acidic HNO3 and a other product alcaline NaOH.
The carbon will be transformed to Na2CO3 and the Nitrogen to NaNO3. Hydrogen will be NaOH. Develop again. The second reaction also will give the same.
4 Na2O2 + CH3NO2 + H2O => Na2CO3 + NaNO3 + 5 NaOH
Without water
4 Na2O2 + CH3NO2 => Na2CO3 + NaNO3 + 3 NaOH + Na2O
