Problem 38SP

All of the following compounds can react as acids. Without using a table of acidities, rank them in order of increasing acidity. Explain your ranking.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Step-1

Among all the acids , ethanesulfonic acid (CH3CH2SO3H) is the strongest acid. Because in its resonating structure  the -ve charge spread over three oxygen atoms. Greater the number of resonating structure stronger will be the acid.

Step-2

CH3CH2OH(Ethyl alcohol)

If we will remove one proton , it will give ,

CH3CH2OH       CH3CH2O- + H+

 Its resonance structure (no resonating structure)

                                   +

  H3C - H2C-O-     CH3-CH2 = O  

Step-3

CH3CH2COOH

Step-4

CH3CHClCOOH (2-chloropropanoic...
