I found a sentence given in my textbook:
More is steric effect more is acidic strength of carboxylic acids and more is steric effect less is basic strength of aniline and other amines.
Could someone please explain with an example?
I guess it might seem I am asking about ortho effect but I am not. I have gone through the post suggested but I am basically asking about subcases of ortho effect as in if we are asked to compare between ortho tertbutyl benzoic acid and ortho methyl benzoic acid then how would we go about it? Or suppose the questions asks comparing the basic strength between orthotert butyl amine and ortho methyl amine how would we do it ?
