Ionized vs Deprotonated

Postby Courtney McHargue 1I » Mon Jan 21, 2019 7:13 pm

What's the difference between % ionized vs % deprotonated? Are there different names that mean the same calculation?

Ionized and deprotonated are basically the same thing when talking about acids and bases; these words just mean the amount of acid/base that has reacted divided by the amount of acid/base you initially started with (times 100).

Deprotonated means that the molecule/compound has lost a proton. (ie. (H20) -> (H+) + (OH-))

Ionized can mean either the loss or gain of an electron pair, so the molecule/compound becomes charged .
