protonation and deprotonation

Postby 505166714 » Mon Jan 21, 2019 11:38 am

what are protonation and deprotonation? How should I calculate the percentage of protonation and percentage of deprotonation?

Protonation is the process of losing a proton, making a solution more acidic; deprotonation is the converse process. The process of determining protonation would be [conjugate base concentration]/[initial acid concentration]*100%, while deprotonation is [conjugate acid concentration]/[initial base concentration]*100%.

In order to calculate the amount protonated or deprotonated, you do x/initial amount times 100.
