QUESTION

# What is the corect product when 2Nacl + 2H2O = NaOH + H2 + Cl2 Nacl + H2o = NaOH + HCl Which is corect ?

In fact neither is correct. Sodium chloride does not hydrolyze water.

When NaCl is dissolved in water, ionization occurs to form aquated Na^+, and Cl^- ions.

We could represent the reaction as follows:

NaCl rarr Na^(+)(aq) + Cl^(-)(aq).

Na^(+)(aq) represents the aquated sodium ion, which we could formulate as [Na(OH_2)_6]^+, that is 1 sodium ion surrounded by, or aquated by 6 water molecules. No acid/base chemistry occurs.
