Acidity

Postby Sarah Salam 1J » Sun Dec 06, 2020 10:27 pm

In the Friday's lecture, electronegativity was mentioned with acid bonds. How do they relate to increasing electronegativity?

This link has a good diagram for electronegativity and acidity. Acid strength increases with increasing electronegativity of the central atom because the OH bond is more polarized. https://groups.chem.ubc.ca/courseware/p ... dissociate.

Across the periodic table, acidity increases with electronegativity. Down the periodic table, acidity increases with size.

The more electronegative an atom is, the more it will have the ability to withdraw electrons and stabilize the compound, making it a stronger acid.

the more electronegative an atom is the stronger acid it'll be generally
