the pka of acetone is CH3COCH3 is 19.3 which of these bases is strong enough to deprotonate acetone?
a)KOH (pka of H20 = 15.7)
b)Na+ -C(triplebond)CH (pka of C2H2 = 25)
c)NaHCO3 (pka of H2CO3 = 6.4)
d)NaOCH3 pka of CH3OH = 15.6)
i know the answer is b but why is it b? is it because the pka is high?
