9. Why is it that a substance such as CH3NH2 containing no OH- increases the pH when dissolved in wate?

The pH of a 0.20 M solution of methylamine is 12.0
Methylamine is the chemical compound with a formula of CH3NH2. It is a derivative of ammonia, wherein one H atom is replaced by a methyl group...
It is am amine and will grab the H+ part of water and hence release the OH- part into the water. Hence the ph goes up.
LOL must be in Chemistry for Non Majors!
