Textbook Q12.9c

Postby Sydney Wu 2M » Tue Nov 29, 2016 8:39 am

Question 12.9c asks if the reaction CH3COOH(aq) + NH3(aq) ---> CH3CONH2 (aq) + H2O (l) can be classified as reaction between Bronsted acids and bases and to identify the acid and base if it as an acid-base reaction. Can someone please explain how no proton is transferred?

My best guess is that NH2 is being transferred to the formed acetate ion and NH2 is not considered a proton. The proton and hydroxide ion is used to create H2O.
