Brønsted-Lowry Acid-Base Definition An acid is a proton donor, any species which donates a H + . A base is a proton acceptor, any species which accepts a H + . An acid and a base always work together in the transfer of a proton A id b ti i t t f An acid-base reaction can now be viewed from the standpoint of the reactants AND the products. An acid-base reaction is a proton-transfer process An acid reactant will produce a base product and the two will constitute an acid-base conjugate pair . 18-26

Proton transfer as the essential feature of a Brønsted-Lowry acid- base reaction. Lone pair binds H + ( id H + d ) (acid, H donor) (base, H + acceptor) Lone pair bi d H + binds H (base, H + acceptor) (acid, H + donor) ammonium 18-27 ammonia H 2 O (and many other species) are amphoteric!
