Acids and Bases ?

  1. May 21, 2006 #1
    I have problem in complete understanding these concepts especialy in organic chemistry. Inorganic was simple HaON, HCl and similar, but now in organic chemistry Acids and Bases concept and fast determining of those is killing me :(.

    Is there a place on internet with good tutorial covering this subject, good stereochemistry tutorial wouldn’t hurt me also ;). Than you very much!!

    Organic chemistry acid and base definition relies heavily on the Lewis concept, the LUMO and HOMO interaction model of describing acids and bases. But either of the Bronsted or Arrehnius definitions are sufficient in describing the mechanisms. I'm sure that you won't have too concerned about the matter.
