### Percent ionization

Hello,
is percent deprotonation the same thing as percent ionization? One of the TAs referred to it as percent deprotonation and I've never heard of that before so I was just wondering if they are the same :) If not, what's the difference?

yes I believe it is the same. I think he used deprotonization to emphasize the facte that bronzed acids and bases involve the donation and acceptance of protons.

Yes they are the same thing. When an acid is deprotonated it is the same thing as being ionized.

Yes. Percent deprotonation and percent ionization are the same. Deprotonation is an ionization method.
