Proton transfer

Postby Melody Zhang 3L » Tue Dec 04, 2018 11:01 pm

For question 12.9 pt.C, 6th edition, how come there is no proton transfer from CH3COOH --> CH3CONH2?

CH3COOH --> CH3CONH2?

Well, the compound does gain a Hydrogen, and if that is true, then the compound must be a base. However, we also see that the compound loses the OH- and gains a NH2-, further proving that CH3COOH is a base.
