beta H acidity
« on: April 20, 2017, 06:20:12 PM »

A cyclic diketone compound shows higher beta H acidity than the acyclic one. What is the reason for this?
As a ring is more rigid than an open chain, hence H s are fixed at a certain spatial position while due to the probability changinf conformation in open chain causes Hs less available.
Can this be explained like this?

Fixed Antiparallel orientation with the diketo makes them more acidic.
