Hi, I am having trouble grasping the concept. If I want to find out which molecule is more reactive than another how would i go about it? is it to do with electronegativity and ionisation? for example,
Which compound would be more reactive:
or minocycline minocycline.jpg (minocycline is a derivative of tetracycline)
now from what i can understand is :
minocycline would be less reactive than tetracycline as it has more CH3 groups. Which are more electronegative than the OH groups in tetracycline.
is this correct?
