Why is RCN less basic than RNH2?


In rcn N is sp hybridized and in rnh2 n is sp3 hybridized which means rcn should be more elctronegative than rnh2 as sp hybridization is more electronegative than sp3 so rcn should be more basic than rnh2



Why will RCN take H from carbon and not water?


+ve charge on nitrogen with triple bond is highly unstable.
