Amphiprotic and Amphoteric

Postby Josephine Lu 4L » Sat Dec 08, 2018 10:34 am

What is an example of a molecule that is amphoteric but not amphiprotic, and what makes it that way?

There are few examples that are biologically useful/common, but they involve acid base transfers that do not involve protons.
