HW 6C.17.

6C.17. Which is the stronger base, the hypobromite ion (BrO-), or morphine (C17H19O3N)? Justify your answer.

Please help, and thank you!!

The presence of the nitrogen atom usually denotes a weaker base. Furthermore, HBrO is a weak acid, so its conjugate base (BrO-) will be a relatively strong base.
