Prioritization occurs when a base gains an H+ molecule in a chemical reaction, therefore gaining a proton. Ionization is when an acid looses an H+ molecule in a chemical reaction, and therefore becomes negatively charged.

Protonation is when a molecule gains an H+ proton, whereas ionization refers to any event in which an electron is added or removed to change the charge. Protonation involves changing the number of protons, and ionization refers to changing the number of electrons.
