  • Q:

    Treatment of certain dyes with dilute acids bleaches their color due to various oxidation reactions. If these bleached pigments are subsequently treated with dilute base, which of the following would be expected?

     

    A

    The dye color would return because the oxidation reaction is reversible with treatment of dilute base.

    B

    The dye color would return because the base can deprotonate the oxidized product.

    C

    The dye color would not return because the oxidation reaction is not reversible with treatment of dilute base.

    D

    The dye color would not return because the base can deprotonate the oxidized product.
