We can use pKa to predict the course of a reaction. Here we use the deprotonation of acetylene with different bases and predict whether or not the reaction will take place by only using pKa values. … More Acid-Base IV. Factors Affecting the Acidity of Organic Compounds
Contents I. Introduction II. The pKa Table III. Factors Affecting the Acidity of Organic Compounds IV. Conclusion I. Introduction In this post, we shall start by looking at a list of common organic compounds and their respective pKa values, known as the pKa table. We will then have a look at more specific compounds and … More Acid-Base III. The pKa Table and What Information It Tells You
The most useful concept in acid-base theory is the pKa. It is important in organic chemistry as we can use it for many things, shown in the subsequent posts. … More Acid-Base II. What is pKa and Why is It Important?
Acid-base is an important concept in organic chemistry. Let’s recap the basic theory of acid-base. … More Acid-Base I. What are Acids and Bases?
