Organic Chemistry Practice Problems Acidity of Aromatic Hydrocarbons Practice Problems Solution: A student was searching the web for the pKa value ...

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Gandler's class at CSU.

Solution: A student was searching the web for the pKa value of fluorene (see below). He found two contradicting numbers: 2 and 22. Since this is probably a typographical error, he will need to decide which value is correct. Help the student decide. Provide a  short explanation and a chemical equation to support it.
