Percent Protonation

Postby Ritu Gaikwad 2E » Sun Jan 19, 2020 4:16 pm

When calculating percent protonation, do you calculate the concentration of hydronium/hydroxide ions divided by the concentration of the acid/base or is it the concentration of the conjugate base divided by the concentration of the acid/base?

I believe it is conjugate base/acid divided by the original compound.

Percent protonation is the concentration of the conjugate base or acid over the initial concentration of the acid or base.
