Acidity of Aromatic Compounds in Organic Chemistry

Acidity of aromatic compounds with resonance in organic chemistryAromaticity plays a big role in acids and bases, typically covered at the orgo 2 level. Substituted aromatic compounds can have varying acid strength based on the type AND location of the substituent. This video takes you through a series of aromatic acid comparisons.

  1. Thank you Leah! So Ortho/Para positions give extra resonance which gives more stability of conj base and thus stronger acid 🙂
