mundane Posted June 7, 2021 Share Posted June 7, 2021 As you see in the first question -NO2 on ortho causes inductive effect and creates a hydrogen bonding with H in COOH and is considered to be stronger acid than others. In the second question, the -NO2 again shows I- and H bonding but is less acidic. I don't get how the latter one isnt the strongest. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
