26. Conjugate acid of a weak base is always stronger. What will be the decreasing order of basic strength of the following conjugate bases?

OH-, RO-CH3COO-, Cl-


Conjugate acid of the given bases are H2O, ROH, CH3COOH and HCl. Order of their acidic strength is
HCl>CH3COOH>H2O>ROH
Hence, order of basic strength of their conjugate bases is
Cl-<CH3COO-<OH-<RO-
