and how could you 39stinguish the two Acidity and Basicity Quantitative Re ection of Acid Strength Given an acid donating a proton to water 0 II N H 0 C H20 C 3 H3C OH 30 0 HA A39 The extent of that reaction at equilibrium is quantitated by the Ka A 1 H301 HA a Since the products of the reaction are in the numerator larger Ka values are observed for stronger acids Also since pKa log Ka smaller pKa values are observed for stronger acids Quantitative Re ection of Base Strength Given a base accepting a proton from water i I C H20 C OH39 HgC 0 H30 OH B39 HB The extent of that reaction at equilibrium is quantitated by the Kb HB 0H Kb 3 Since the products of the reaction are in the numerator larger Kb values are observed for stronger bases Also since pr log Kb smaller pr values are observed for stronger bases Conjugate AcidBase Pairs Since both Ka and Kb are de ned for reactions involving water their product for conjugate acidbase pairs equals KW 10 0 Since KaKb103914 pKa pr 14 Acid and base strength are therefore conversely related for conjugate acidbase pairs Stronger acids have weaker conjugate bases and VICC VCI SEI KaKb and Free Energy AG Any equilibrium constant can be related to the free energy of the reaction AG 2 RTan OR AG 2 2303RTlogK High Ka values therefore give more negative AG values Determining Relative Acidity from Structure Bronsted acidity depends on Identity of atom donating the proton Relative stability of starting acid and conjugate base produced Charged vs neutral Delocalized charge vs isolated charge Charge delocalization mechanism Resonance vs induction Hybridization of atom donating the proton Atom Identity Problem Given your previous knowledge of acidity rank the following lists of acids from strongest to weakest List 1 H20 HF NH3 CH4 List 2 HCl HBr HF HI Can you relate the order of acidity in your list to trends in the periodic table Relative Stabilities Charged vs Neutral Given the following two acid dissociation reactions which acid do you think is stronger 0 Why H20 Relative Stability Charge Delocalization I Both of the following acid dissociation reactions generate charged products with identical donating atoms o 3 3 H H3C OH H3c o CH3CH20H CH3CH2039 H Are the charges in either product stabilized in any way Which starting material is a stronger acid Relative Stability Charge Delocalization II Both of the following acid dissociation reactions generate charged products with identical donating atoms 0 O H3C OH H3c o o o 3 3 H F3C OH F3c o Are the charges in either product stabilized in any way Which starting material is a stronger acid Atom Hybridization Hybridization in uences acidity because orbitals have differing energy and electrons closer to the nucleus will be more stable and thus less reactive L H H 1 c T

Structure Bronsted basicity depends on Identity of atom accepting the proton Relative stability of starting base and conjugate acid produced Charged vs neutral Delocalized charge vs isolated charge Chargeelectron delocalization mechanism Resonance vs induction Hybridization of atom accepting the proton Atom Identity Problem Since acid and conjugate base strength are inversely related how can you use the periodic table to predict base strength Come up with a list of three bases in order of increasing strength based on the trends you propose Relative Stability Problem Rank the following bases from most to least basic consider the relative stabilities of the starting materials products and the relative CHANGES in stability from reactants to products NH3 H NH4 o o c H gt c ch NHZ ch NH3

reactions and which might require a phasetransfer catalyst CN KCN gt OH O H2Cf204 gt z i Side Reactions Desirable organic compounds often have multiple functional groups many of which will react with the same reagents Example the following Grignard reaction does NOT produce 4methyl24heptandiol What is produced instead OH O W CH3MgBr gt Prevention of Side Reactions Protecting Groups Functional groups that might perform undesired reactions can be converted to a different functional group that is inert to the conditions that will be used called a protecting group These protecting groups should be easily removable under other conditions in order to regenerate the initial functional group Protecting Group Example lerIbutyldimethylsilyl chloride TBDMSCI H3C3C CH3 1 OH 0 H3 d 1 HC 0 o 1
