lesson 6 - diagnosing reactions - part 5

Post by mcatacct1 » Mon Jun 22, 2020 5:35 pm

"true acidity trends are a combination of inductive effects above AND the amine's ability to H bond in aqueous solutions: 2°< 1°< 3°< NH3"

1. Could you elaborate on how H-bonds increases acidity?

2. Could you elaborate on the ordering of increasing acidity from 2°< 1°< 3°< NH3? I would have thought the more H-bonds the better (i.e. 3<2<1<NH3), but that appears to be wrong.

So this question again gets back to the solvation effect, so if you look at my reply to your other question on bacisity, this is basically the same thing, just in the reverse order!
