12.9 (c)

Why is (c) CH3COOH(aq) + NH3(aq) -> CH3CONH2(aq) + H2O(l) not considered a proton transfer?

Proton transfers are usually represented by the transfer of a hydrogen atom. Whether the proton of a water molecule went to a base, or when the proton of an acid went to a water molecule. In this case, there was no proton transfer, but rather an OH bond was transferred from and replaced with NH2. And the OH bonded with last H atom remaining.
