How do you write the chemical equation for a proton transfer?

there are many possible equations to illustrate a proton transfer. A proton is just an H+ atom and so it is common to see this transferred from an acid to a water molecule to make H3O+ in an acid equilibrium equation.

A proton transfer is just the tranfer of a hydrogen ion (H+) in solution. You would write it as hydronium (H3O+) on the product side and the conjugate base along with it.
