Solution: Rank these acids according to their expected p Ka values.

Problem

Rank these acids according to their expected p Ka values.

Solution

For this problem, we have to rank the acids from highest to lowest pKa:

  • Recall that pKa is relative to acidity whereas pKa decreases, the acidity increases
  • In this case, we were given a 2C organic compounds with Cl right next to the -COOH group
