Problem 43SP

Rank the following species in order of increasing basicity. Explain your reasons for ordering them as you do.

NH3

CH3O-

H2O

CH3COO-

NaOH

NH2-

HSO4-

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 43SP

Step 1 </p>

When arranging species in order of increasing basicity, it’s important to look at the conjugate acid of the base. If the conjugate acid is weak (and this can be determined by looking at a table of  values), the corresponding base will be strong. You can therefore use a  table to determine the relative basicity of different species.

Step 2 </p>

This experiment gives us the following species, and asks us to rank them in order of increasing basicity.

This list is repeated again here along with the  value of the corresponding conjugate acid placed in parentheses.
