Brontsted and Lewis

Postby Helen Mejia 1I » Fri Dec 07, 2018 3:14 pm

Can someone explain the difference between Bronsted and Lewis acids and bases? Is there any easy way to identify what it is in an equation?

Lewis acids are ELECTRON acceptors (easy way is Acid and Acceptor)
Lewis bases are ELECTRON donors

Bronsted acids are PROTON donors
bronsted bases are PROTON acceptors
