Lewis Structure of CH3S-

Postby Julia Mazzucato 4D » Wed Dec 04, 2019 12:05 pm

Based on the Lewis Structure of CH3S-, is this compound more likely to be a Lewis acid or base? This is from TB question 6A14.

I think this compound is a lewis base as Sulphur atom has lone pairs on it and therefore, the compound can act as an electron pair donor.

I agree, I believe it would be a Lewis base because of the lone pairs on the sulfur --> working as an electron donor.
