Problem 23.8

Following are structural formulas for propanoic acid and the conjugate acids of isopropylamine and alanine, along with pKa values for each functional group. pKa 10.78 pKa 4.78 pKa 2.35 NH3 1 Conjugate acid of isopropylamine CH3CHCH3 pKa 9.87 NH3 1 Conjugate acid of alanine CH3CHCOH O Propanoic acid CH3CH2COH O (a) How do you account for the fact that the !NH3 1 group of the conjugate acid of alanine is a stronger acid than the !NH3 1 group of the conjugate acid of isopropylamine? (b) How do you account for the fact that the !COOH group of the conjugate acid of alanine is a stronger acid than the !COOH group of propanoic acid?
