is an aldehyde or a ketone more acidic?
what is the pka of nitriles.. i tried looking this up but i cant find nething
nitriles don't have a distinct pka... unless u are looking at either an H or a CH3 group connected to it... which makes Hydrocyanic Acid pka 10 and Acetonitrile pka 25. Once u get longer Carbon chaines it is determined from what the chain is. Either Alkynes, Alkenes or Alkanes.
