Introduction to Acids and Bases in Organic Chemistry

introduction to acids and bases in organic chemistry

The first step to ranking acids and bases without Ka/pKa values is to understand the 3 common definitions of acids and bases. This video helps you understand, rather than just memorize, the Arrhenius, Bronsted-Lowry, and Lewis Definitions. But that’s just the start, this video also shows you how to compare any 2 conjugates to determine […]

Arrhenius Bronsted-Lowry Lewis Acids and Bases

As an organic chemistry student you will find yourself faced with acid/based questions again and again. From categorizing molecules to ranking their strength without pKa or pKb values. This isn’t terrible if/when you learn it correctly, however, your professor will assume you alredy know this. So s/he won’t teach it. Why? Because you’re expected to remember […]
