Superacids and Superbases

Postby Gurvardaan Bal1L » Tue Dec 05, 2017 5:04 pm

What are superacids and superbases? How can we tell whether an acid or base is one and what are their conventional uses?

According to the classical definition, a super acid is an acid with an acidity greater than that of 100% pure sulfuric acid. A super base is an extremely basic compound that has a high affinity for protons. Don't know too much besides their definition but hopefully this cleared up some things!
