Out of alkenes (ethylene) and alkynes (acetylene) which is more acidic and why ?

No comments

The alkynes are more acidic in nature as compared to the alkenes . This is due to the fact that the alkynes give hydrogen on reacting with sodium metal, but Alkenes don’t give hydrogen. The alkynes release hydrogen and forms a sodium salt which clearly shows it’s acidic nature.
