🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Baldwin's class at OSU.

Solution: 4-dimethylaminopyridine (DMAP) is a very useful molecule often used as a nucleophilic catalyst in organic synthesis. You may know that nucleophilicity commonly goes hand in hand with basicity. Consider the structure of DMAP (below) and circle the atom that is most basic. Provide a reasonable explanation for your logic using pictures and a minimum amount of words.
