How is the pKa of extremely weak acids determined?
According to Wikipedia, the conjugate acid of LDA has a pKa of about 35 - which is in line with figures I've seen elsewhere. How then can such a weak acid's pKa be determined? If the determination... more
Why does depurination happen at a higher pH (or under less harsh conditions) than depyrimidation?
I've always wondered why the N-glycosidic bond, which connects the adenine or guanine purine bases to their sugars, was the easiest to cleave via acid hydrolysis, or why purines have the lowest... more

The Ka for a hypothetical weak acid HX is 3.1 x 10-5. Buffer solutions containing HX and NaX could be prepared to make a range of pH values. What would be the lower and upper pH values of the... more
Why is the pH of the first equivalence point, of a titration of polyprotic acid, not equal to7?
A titration of phosphoric acid with sodium hydroxide. The first equivalence point has a pH of about 5. My thoughts are that because it is only the first equivalence point, only one H+ has been... more
Calculate the Ka of a weak acid?
A sample of a certain monoprotic weak acid was dissolved in water and titrated with 16.00mL of 0.125M NaOH to reach the equivalence point. During the titration, the pH after adding 2.00mL of NaOH... more
[NH4Br](aq) = 0.020M , pKa of NH4+= 9.24 Given that the question is asking for pH, I know I need to find the [H3O+], so I've set up the reaction to look like this: NH4Br (aq) + H2O ⇌ H3O+ +... more
