AIPMT 2010 Prelims

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Among the following four compounds
(i)  Phenol
(ii)  Methyl phenol
(iii)  Meta-nitrophenol
(iv)  Para-nitrophenol

The acidity order is
A
(iv) > (iii) > (i) > (ii)
B
(iii) > (iv) > (i) > (ii)
C
(i) > (iv) > (iii) > (ii)
D
(ii) > (i) > (iii) > (iv)

Explanation

In phenols, the presence of electron releasing groups decrease the acidity, whereas presence of electron withdrawing groups increase the acidity, compared to phenol.

Among the meta and para-nitrophenols, the latter is more acidic as the presence of –NO2 group at para position stabilises the phenoxide ion to a greater extent than when it is present at meta position. Thus, correct order of acidity is :

(iv) > (iii) > (i) > (ii)
