Organic Chemistry Concepts
This chapter introduces the concepts of acidity and basicity as they relate to organic molecules. Acids and bases are defined in terms of Brønsted–Lowry and Lewis criteria. Expressions for acidity and basicity are discussed and applied to a study of carboxylic acids. The influence of factors such as inductive and delocalization/resonance effects on acidity are studied. The same concepts are applied to other functional classes in order to understand the wide range of acidity possible within organic molecules.
