Basic and Acidic Compounds

Postby DTingey_1C » Mon Nov 25, 2019 2:52 pm

I don't understand what makes something basic or acidic. Are bronsted bases very basic on their own? Or are they only basic when they have water and acids to interact with? Thanks.

Bronsted bases are always bases because they can potentially act as bases when in the presence of water or acids
