2.64g of an organic base, isolated from a shrub in the mountains of Peru was dissolved in 100mL of water. 25.0mL of this solution required 27.5mL of 0.250mL HCL for complete neutralization. It was later determined that each molecule of the unknown base could accept two protons. What is the molar mass of this unknown compound?
