Unformatted text preview: copy and paste these structures back and forth into ISIS to add arrows. Note: Me = methyl group = CH 3 Nucleophile electrophile Electrophile nucleophile 5. The following reactions represent Bronstead acid-base reactions. For each reaction, label the acid, base, conjugate acid, conjugate base and predict if the reaction will go faster in the forward or reverse direction and briefly explain. C H 3 NH-O C H 3 NH 2 C H 3 NH 2 O C H 3 NH-+ + Base acid conjugate base conjugate acid It would react faster in the forward reaction because the con. acid is more electronegative and will dissociate easier in the solution. C H H H C H H OH Na+ -:N H H C H H H C H H O- +Na N H H H + + Base acid conjugate base conjugate acid It would react faster in the forward reaction because the OH compound is more electronegative and the NH 3 compound is more stable....
