Which is More Acidic?
Which is more acidic, 4-nitrophenol or 2-fluoro-4-nitrophenol?
I think it would be 2-fluoro-4-nitrophenol because acidity is increased by the presence of electron withdrawing groups. 2-fluoro-4-nitrophenol has two electron withdrawing groups as opposed to only one for 4-nitrophenol. Is that correct? Should I also consider resonance when answering this question?
