Methoxide vs Ethoxide as a Base
« on: April 02, 2004, 11:11:09 AM »
How effective as a base would CH3O-Na+  be as compared to
C2H5O-Na+  ?

How effective/strong is C2H5O-Na+  as compared to LDA
(lithium Diisopropyl Amide) ?

I imagine LDA is stronger than the ethyl anion.

The ethoxide anion is the stronger base.
