It is not obvious which base a proton will prefer in an acid-base reaction, for example, which side will be favored in the reaction: HF + CH 3 CO 2 F + HCH 3 CO 2 To address this, we need to know the relative affinity of bases for H + . Affinity : …natural attraction… Water has a stronger affinity for protons than chloride ions. Fluoride ions have a stronger affinity for protons than water. As molecules interact primarily through electrical forces, and as adding or removing a proton changes the charge of a substance, proton affinities play a significant role in molecular interactions. Relative affinities can be identified through values of pK a , a number indicating the relative strength of an acid, and having the characteristics that the smaller the value of pK a , the stronger the acid and the weaker its conjugate base .
