Unformatted text preview: 33 11 Assume that H3O+ (aqueous acid; e.g. sulfuric acid) has a pKa of  ­2 to  ­3 and that TsOH (toluene sulfonic acid) does as well. FYI: pK a = – log K a and K a = 10 – pKa and, for a typical reaction of the type acid + base conjugate acid + conjugate base the following holds true: pK rxn ≈ pK a (acid ) – pK a (conjugate acid ) and K rxn = 10 – pKrxn...
