For each of the following pairs, which is the stronger acid or base? Write the reaction taking place and explain your reasoning concerning the strength.
a. Methylamine and ammonia in reaction with H+ in the gas phase
b. Pyridine or 2-methylphyridine in reaction with triphenylboron
c. Triphenylboron or trimethylboron in reaction with ammonia
When the electron donating groups are present in the base then it increases the basicity and when electron withdrawing groups are present then it increases the acidity
following image shows the reaction for the each species and also classified them as which is more stronger base or acid.
