Acidic Strength
Question

Statement-I: Acidic strength of RCH2OH>R2CHOH>R3COH

Statement-II: OH bond polarity in RCH2OH>R2CHOH>R3COH

Moderate
Solution

As the number of +I groups increase (alkyl groups increase), non-polar nature of alcohol increases, O-H bond polarity decreases.

(or)

Increase in the number of alkyl groups, (+I groups) decreases the electronegativity of oxygen atom, O-H bond polarity decreases.
