p-nitrophenol and m-nitrophenol are both acidic compounds, but one isomer is more acidic than the other. Draw the various resonance structures for each anions. Predict which isomer is the more acidic and use the resonace structures to support your rationale. O NO 2 O NO 2 O NO 2 O N O O This resonance structure show the stabilizing effect of

Unformatted text preview: the nitro group at the para position Draw the family of resonance structures to compare the relative stabilities. O N O O pKa (p-nitrophenol)= 7.2 Stronger acid than m isomer O NO 2 O O O NO 2 NO 2 NO 2 This group of resonance structures shows that the nitro group has NO stabilizing influence on the anion and therefore little effect upon the acidity. pKa (m-nitrophenol)= 8.4 Weaker acid than p isomer Draw the family of resonance structures to compare the relative stabilities....
