Questions about alkaline/bases

Post by NegativeZer »

This is a bit of a tangle of questions, but they all relate back to the same thing.

Lemon juice is able to dissolve paper by using it as well as water and heat. I was wondering, as bases can be just as strong as acids, would strong bases be able to do the same thing (dissolve paper)?

If not, why?
