Hydrogen Question

Postby 105194078 » Thu Dec 05, 2019 1:44 pm

Do they want us to remove all the hydrogens when trying to get a conjugate base?

Not necessarily, removal of one hydrogen is the conjugate base of an acid. For instance, H2CO3 has the conjugate bases HCO3- and CO3 2-

Lavelle slightly discussed this in the lecture on Wednesday, when talking about polyprotic acids. Polyprotic acids can donate more than 1 H+, whereas monoprotic acids can only donate 1. So when trying to get a conjugate base, it just depends on the acid you're working with.
