Organic Chemistry Acid Base Cheat Sheet Study Guide

Acids and bases do not require much math at the organic chemistry level. Instead you will be required to understand what makes a strong acid or weak conjugate base. Your goal is to understand the nature of acidity and basicity so that you can comfortably rank the strong and weak molecules based on structure and conjugates.

Your professor may rush through it, and your textbook skimp on details, but you must put in the effort to really understand this topic. To help you along I’ve created a detailed Acid/Base video series.
