I'm not sure if these are all the ones we need to know but here are some: strong acids: HCl, HI, HBr, H2SO4, HNO3, HClO4. Strong bases: LiOH, NaOH, KOH, RbOH, CsOH, Ca(OH)2, Sr(OH)2, and Ba(OH)2.

Remember when a polyprotic acid gives up a proton (H+), the resulting conjugate base is also able to dissociate more but at a much lower pKa value and is generally not considered a strong acid anymore.
