Amines

- are alkyl derivatives of ammonia

Best base : CH3NH2>NH3>C6H5NH2

Ethylamine stronger than NH3 => electron releasin effect => increases electron availability on the N atom so that a lone pair of electrons are donated more readily=> and a proton is more strongly accepted.

Phenylamine weaker than NH2 => high charge density attracts the lone pairs of electron from N to move towards benzene ring =…
