I have not finish my revision on Chemistry for tomorrow's exam, and there is just a lot of things to by heart when you have so little time. This will serve as reminder to myself, never again, procrastinate and to work in the eleventh hour. You will reap what you have sown. Chemistry is not my strong forte and currently I am struggling with organic chemistry, especially the polymers. Well, physical chemistry has the same level difficulty as well. So, here, out of the blue, I am going to explain to you, people, about the acidity and basicity, hydrolysis of some of the organic compounds,. (The reason why I am doing this is just that I am too lazy to write on a piece of paper :P)
ClCH2COOH > CH2COOH > CH2OH
More acidic to the least
- 1 (higher Ka value) due to the presence of CL (electron-withdrawing).
- More stable. Does not form back to undissociate molecule.
- 3 (lower Ka value) due to presence of OH (electron-donating)
- Becomes more unstable. More like to form back with H+.
As for the rest, I have changed my mind, sorry! I am going to write in on my notebook first, then perhaps I will edit this post later on!
