Polyprotic Acids and strength

Postby Drishti_Jain_1D » Wed Nov 23, 2016 9:24 pm

Are polyprotic acids always weak acids, or are there any examples of strong polyprotic acids?

I think they're for the most part weak. But H2SO4 is a strong acid and gives off more than one proton so I don't think we should assume ALL are weak, but probably most.

I don't think it's safe to assume that all polyprotic acids are weak, but most are because it's difficult to lose the second Hydrogen.
