What is an "organic functional group" ?
What relation does it have towards pH ?
a functional group is something that "hang off" of a molecule, and can potentially react with something. examples would include: hydroxyl, halogens, carboxylic acids, amines, sulfhydrl, etc.
a functional group can affect the pH if it can dissociate a proton, or accept a proton. carboxylic acids would be a prime example.
yeah usually if you open any good organic chemistry book they have the func. groups on the back of the front cover. Have a look at Organic chemistry (6th ed) by Wade, behind the front cover and the first chapter. Mcmurry is also a good reference but it may be difficult to study with.
