Cyclohexylamine amine is the stronger base than Aniline? Why?


We can say that aniline is a weaker base than cyclohexylamine because the electron pair on nitrogen of aniline is strongly held by virtue of being delocalized into the π system of the aromatic ring. The unshared pair in cyclohexylamine is localized on nitrogen, less strongly held, and therefore “more available” in an acid–base reaction.
