A Lewis base is defined as a species that donates an electron pair (has lone pair electrons) while a Lewis acid is defined as a species that accepts an electron pair (has vacant orbitals). The acceptance of an electron pair by the Lewis acid from the Lewis base enables the formation of a coordinate covalent bond. Hope this helps!
