I take it gen chem 3 year ago, and we never ever spent an ext than a week on pKa problems. I was never taught how to estimate pKa simply by looking in ~ a compound. I'm in orgo now and also I'm struggling.

You are watching: Estimate the pka values of the following compounds

Here space 2 of the problems-

Estimate the pKa worths of the following compounds:

a) CH3 CH2 CH2 NH2 (sorry because that the formatting however I don't know just how to do subscript or anything, it's all one link together)

For this one, I know the prize is ~40, yet I don't know just how to figure that out. Can anyone to walk me through it?

b) CH3 CH2 CH2 five (again, one compound)

If girlfriend can help me at every I'd it is in so for this reason grateful. I understand it's something to execute with practical groups, however I just don't recognize where to go from there.

For subscripts put the character you want subscripted whereby the an are is in *_ _* .

Do you have a pKa table? The only way to do this is to compare the structure and functional groups compounds whose pKa values room known.

Have friend tried 35 because that the amine? You must Google a basic pka table.
