document Acids and Bases
In Organic Chemistry, both acids and bases are usually thought of by their ability to act as acids. The pKa unit is the most common way to compare acidic (even if very poorly acidic) protons on different molecules. Two molecules that are more than 3 pKa units apart will result in almost complete...

document pKa Table
The pKa table is a crucial tool for any organic chemist when ranking the strength of acids or bases. Check out this very comprehensive pKa table The pKa values given in this table represent the -log[Ka] of an acid (pKa = -log[Ka]).  The Ka describes the extent to which a specific acid...
