You are watching: Nh3 strong or weak acid or base
You"re mix up NH3 with NH2-. The pKa the NH3 is 38 therefore NH2- is a solid base. The pKa the NH4+ is ~10 therefore NH3 is a lot weaker base 보다 NH2-. Regarding OP"s question, it"s every relative. You"re ideal that NH3 is generally not taken into consideration such a strong base (because it"s neutral); it"s considerably weaker 보다 OH-, for example. However, in the paper definition of the question, it may have actually been more powerful than one more base he was talking about so he referred to as it a "strong base".
You"re mixing up NH3 through NH2-. The pKa that NH3 is 38 so NH2- is a strong base. The pKa the NH4+ is ~10 for this reason NH3 is a much weaker base than NH2-.

true, I"m walk base off Ochem. However it still chem so it applies. NH3 would certainly deprotonate compounds through pKa below its pKa. it is pretty relative. NH3 is a strong base if there was HCl in the solution
bootcamp in its explanation claimed NH3 is a solid base... Last i checked it isn"t.. Therefore which is the this to be the message " To highlight this, think that ammonium, NH4+. Ammonium is a weak acid, yet the conjugate base of ammonium is ammonia, NH3, which is a solid base. " is it..... Or what male
NH3 is a weak base. NH2-, known as the amide ion is a very an effective base. I have actually been working with this base because that over 35 years and it normally finishes the job particularly in the E2 process or structure larger alkynes during organic synthesis. expect this help Dr. Romano

Your reply is really short and likely walk not add anything to the thread. Your reply is very long and also likely does not add anything to the thread.
