    Wink A question for you all

    can any punter or escort tell me whether
    the reason that CH3NH2 is a stronger base than CH3OH is because
    (a) hyperconjugation resonance of the product, CH3NH3+, is better than for CH3OH2+.
    (b) resonance of the product, CH3NH3+, is better than for CH3OH2+.
    (c) the electronegativity of nitrogen is less than oxygen, thus making the electron pair more available.
    (d) It isn't. The oxygen atom has 2 non-bonded pairs of electrons making it twice as basic.

    I'm sure this topical question has been playing on a lot of peoples minds
    as we approach Xmas?

    CH3OH is an organic compound, neither an acid nor a base whereas CH3NH2 is a base.

    Do you by any chance know a little guy called Dublin Laddie? He would lurve you

    It is despite appearanes none of the above. Methylamine or CH3NH2 is prepared commercially by the reaction of ammonia with methanol in the presence of a silicoaluminate catalyst. Dimethylamine and trimethylamine are coproduced; the reaction kinetics and reactant ratios determine the ratio of the three products
    CH3OH + NH3 → CH3NH2 + H2O

    I am fairly sure this is right. Anyway;
    CH3OH is methanol, commonly MeOH, Methanol is produced naturally in the anaerobic metabolism of many varieties of bacteria, and is ubiquitous in the environment. As a result, there is a small fraction of methanol vapor in the atmosphere. Over the course of several days, atmospheric methanol is oxidized with the help of sunlight to carbon dioxide and water.
    Methanol burns in air forming carbon dioxide and water:
    2 CH3OH + 3 O2 → 2 CO2 + 4 H2O

    So my point is it is the second one, Silafoam. This is the answer

    Questions like that is what google is for, certainly not an escorting forum. Unless its got something to do with OWO I don't want to know.

    sorry monkey nut but Methylamine is also an organic compond
    but full marks for identifying the first one and for looking sexy
