Hello, I was wondering to what extent we need to know about Lewis acids and bases. I know the basic information (eg. one shares and one donates), but I don’t know if that’s enough for the test. Can someone give me more information about their differences and similarities?
In the context of coordination compounds, the transition metal is the Lewis acid and the ligands are the Lewis bases because the ligands donate electron pairs to the transition metal to form coordinate covalent bonds.
