Weak/Strong acids

Postby MaryBanh_2K » Sat Nov 30, 2019 4:53 pm

In a reaction, how can you tell if a molecule/ion has been incompletely or completely deprotonated?

Strong acids completely deprotonate. A good way to tell if something is a strong acid is if the resulting anion is stable.

We should know some of the main strong acids and bases from memory. These molecules completely deprotonate. With this logic, we can see if the molecule falls into one of these categories and if it does not then the molecule does not completely deprotonate.
