The chemical formula of benzoic acid is C7H6O2: it has seven carbon (C) atoms, six hydrogen (H) atoms and two oxygen (O) atoms. This chemical formula can also be written as C6H5COOH. The chemical structure of carboxylic acid is shown here. Acids and bases are used in many chemical reactions. They are responsible for most color change reaction and are used to adjust the pH of chemical solutions. Here are the names of some of the common acids and bases and the formulas associated with them.
