Bronsted acids in products

Postby lauren chung 2f » Fri Dec 08, 2017 6:31 pm

Are Bronsted acids and bases only found in the reactant side of an equation or is it possible to have one on the product end as well?

I believe that conjugate acids/bases found on the products side are considered Bronsted acids/bases as well. Especially due to the reversibility of many reactions, I don't think that they are only found on one side.

I'm pretty sure you can have Bronsted acids and bases on the product side as well as conjugate acid-base pairs and since the reactions are reversible it would make sense for it to be on both sides of the equilibrium.
