There are two types of acids and bases, bronsted and lewis. Bronsted acids are defined as proton donators and bronsted bases as proton acceptors. However, lewis acids are defined as electron acceptors and lewis bases as electron donators.
Lewis Acid accepts e- pair and Lewis Base donates e- pairs. Bronsted Acid donates H+ and Bronsted Base accepts H+. Bronsted Acid and Base only involve Hydrogen while Lewis Acid and Base deals with all atoms/molecules. All Bronsted Acids/Bases are Lewis Acids/Bases are Lewis Acids/Bases for this reason.
