Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3which proton is more acidic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you would think because of the Nitrogen right? but if you look at which is more stable after deprotonation (conjugate) , you will actually realize that B is more stable, there more B is more acidic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you show me how you change it to conjugate base like you said in the chat?@

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then b would be less basic than a?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3okay let us define acid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, an acid is electron loving (electronphiles) and donates protons.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3proton donor, and correct that acid is an electrophilic then we can say that stronger acid generates weaker base weaker acid generates stronger base

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, weaker acid makes the reaction favors the reactant or products on where the weaker acid is on

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so which of the two has weaker conjugate base?

Zale101

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You said b is more acidic, then it has the weaker base.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3remember strong acid creates weak base

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Another useful mnemonic for comparing acidity: ARIO A = atom R = resonance I = induction O = orbital

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the negative charge is more stable with the triple bond  sp hybridize carbon atom than the negative charge of sp3 hybridized nitrogen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3do you want something more straightforward?

nincompoop

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you can pick from 3.25, 3.26 that you think gives you a little problem

Zale101

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in a, the red h, proton, is more acidic because it is capable of more resonance

nincompoop

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3it has more resonance than the other?

nincompoop

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3delocalization of negative charge means more stable, therefore weaker base, therefore stronger acid .... so you now realize why my first question requires you to draw conjugate bases and see which is more stable?

Zale101

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The negative charge can create a lone pair on the oxygen, can go all over the other carbons

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In reference to your first structure, pKa of an amine group (nonprotonated) is about 40, pKa of alkyne is roughly 25. and as you should know by now, pKa is a measure of the conjugate base stability.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hence, stronger acids have greater Ka values and more negative pKa values.
