Comparison of Base Strength in Water and Ammonia II.2.1. Base Strength Using Kb and pKb II.2.2. Base Strength Using KaH and pKaH III. Conclusion I. Introduction Before we see the actual … More Acid-Base IX. Acidity, Basicity, and Solvent – Part 2
Almost all experiments in the lab needs the aid of a solvent. Just like reactants and products, solvents are also chemicals and they can react with other chemicals. Here we look at how to avoid unwanted side effects caused by the solvent. … More Acid-Base VIII. Acidity, Basicity, and Solvent – Part 1
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 V. Using pKa to Predict the Course of a Reaction – Part 1
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
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?
