I have an acid and base organic chem quiz tomorrow and I need help determining how acidic protons are. I understand the concept of atoms, resonance, induction, and orbital when considering the acidity of protons. However, when I'm given these molecules, it overwhelms me so I don't understand how to break them down. I believe that the first step is that I have to find the conjugate base for each one and then just compare? Below is photo of my worksheet. I have already filled in the correct answers. Thanks in advance for your help.
the c hydrogen is more acidic because it is stacked between two electron withdrawing carbonly groups, and after the loss of hydrogen the carbanion is more stabilized, where as the same thing is not observed in case of d hydrogen the carbanion is in conjugation but only with one of carbonly group followed by b and c hydrogen.
now in case of second example, e is more acidic because it is allylic as well as next to the carbonyl group which means the anion after loss of hydrogen is more stabilized as come to f and g.
