Not necessarily. aqueous acids and bases disassociate in water so I would more closely relate it to an ion-ion interaction. Depending on structure, acids and bases may have the capability of hydrogen bonding, but simple interactions would not be.
Lewis bases and Lewis acids deal with chemical reactions in which the Lewis base (in the reactant side of a reaction) donates the electrons to the Lewis acid (which is the product side of the reaction). Hydrogen bonding deals with intermolecular attractions in which a Hydrogen atom of one molecule is attracted to a highly electronegative atom (N, O, or F) of another molecule. Hydrogen bonding does not deal with chemical reactions
Hi! The formation of a hydrogen bond can be considered an interaction between a Lewis acid and base. In a hydrogen bond, there is always a donor (H) and acceptor (what is binding to the H atom. For this reason, a formation of a hydrogen bond can be considered an interaction between a Lewis acid and base.
