Homework Help: Rank the acidity

  1. Oct 14, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    BCl3, BF3, B(CH3)3, B(CH3O)3

    Rank the acidity of these compounds.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I dont know how to determine the acidity of B(CH3O)3

    and how the acidity of BF3 and BCl3 is higher than B(CH3)3 because of F and Cl high electronegativity.

    How can i Rank these 4 compounds?
