"The KHA of water and five alcohols were determined in t̲-butyl alcohol employing sodium and potassium t̲-butoxides. The order of acidity is methanol>water>ethanol> 2-propanol~cyclohexanol>methanol. It was also shown that potassium t̲-butoxide was twice as strong a base as sodium t̲-butoxide. A spectrophotometric method was employed with p-nitroaniline as the indicator. Calculations were made employing the methods of Stearns and Wheland and of Hine and Hine"--Abstract, page iii.
