Equilibrium Acidities in Dimethyl Sulfoxide Solution

  title={Equilibrium Acidities in Dimethyl Sulfoxide Solution},
  author={Frederick G. Bordwell},
The first acidity scale to be established in a pure solvent other than water was the result of the pioneering work of Conant, Wheland, and McEwen in ether or ben~ene .~ During the past 20 years an ion-pair acidity scale covering an "effective pKa rangefrom about 15 to 40 has been developed in cyclohexylamine (CHA),6 and similar studies in other low-dielectric-constant solvents including 1,2-dimethoxyethane (DME)7a and tetrahydrofuran (THF)7b*c have been carried out. A more limited ion-pair… CONTINUE READING
