Problem: Rank the following ions in order of increasing basicity. Be sure to answer all parts.CH3CH2-            CH3NH-            CH3O-

FREE Expert Solution

The basicity of a given chemical compound depends upon the strength of its conjugate acid.

The smaller is the pKa value of a given conjugate acid, the more will be its acidic character. As a result, the lower will be the basicity of the conjugate base.
