Problem 21.33

Account for the fact that water-insoluble carboxylic acids (pKa 45) dissolve in 10%aqueous sodium bicarbonate (pH 8.5) with the evolution of a gas, but that water-insoluble phenols (pKa 9.510.5) do not dissolve in 10% sodium bicarbonate.

Devan Atteberry 4/14/2016 Chem 312 Week #3: Saturated/Unsaturated Hydrocarbons and Pi Bonds Major Structure at pH - Equilibrium A+ B= C+D o Equilibrium expression is Keq  Keq= (c) (d)/ (a) (b) or products/reactants  Keq=0 when no products are created  Keq=1 when products and reactants are the same in amount - pH o pH 7 is close to the biological conditions within human body - To do the structure and pH questions: o First find the most acidic Hydrogen on the molecule presented  Look for functional groups  Carboxylic acids generally 4.8 pKa  Generic C-H bonds generally 49 pKa  Alcohols are generally 17 pKa o If pH is less than pKa, solution isn’t basic enough to remove acidic hydrogen  pKa values higher than pH, hydrogen remain  pKa values lower than pH, hydrogen is removed o This entire process is called pronating Saturated Hyrdocarbons - Saturated means no rings or pi bonds contained in the molecule presented - General formal is Cn H2n+2 - 1 carbon (CH4)- methane - 2 carbon (H3CCH2) - ethane - 3 carbon (H3CCH2CH3)- propane - 4 ca
