Unformatted text preview: ( 1 mark ), all curly arrows describing electron movement ( 4marks ) and all charges ( 1 mark ) (if applicable). 4b . (6) Use the appropriate chemical equations to evaluate the equilibrium constant describing the proton exchange between sodium ethoxide (NaEtO-) (pKa of EtOH = 16) and H 2 O (pKa of H 2 O =15.7). See notes The equilibrium constant for deprotonation of water using ethoxide is 10 16 x 10-15.7 = 10 0.3 which is greater than 1… so slightly favourable rxn 5. (5) Stereochemistry . Indicate which of the molecules shown below is chiral (4 marks). Assign the absolute configuration to any one of the stereogenic (chiral) centres (1 mark)....
