More on Effects Controlling Carboxylic Acidity.
Schwartz, Lowell M.
Journal of Chemical Education, v58 n10 p778-79 Oct 1981
Gas phase acidity data shown are offered to writers of elementary organic chemistry texts for replacement of the aqueous phase data that are universally used. Relative acidities in the gas phase are controlled virtually exclusively by enthalpic factors. Structural-energetic explanations of acidic trends can therefore be used. (SK)
