I am having a doubt in here that NaOH reacts with methanol but not with ethanol.
Theoretically my instructor on chemistry says that the conjugate base of ethanol would be stronger than NaOH.
But I can see in many websites that the reaction is given(reaction of CH4 and NaOH).
Also a side question to this is CH4,C2H6 will not react with NaOH. Is there any reason other than full saturation CH4 and C2H6.
