Recall that a Bronsted-Lowry Acid and a Bronsted-Lowry Base.
Bronsted-Lowry acid → proton (H+) donor
Bronsted-Lowry base → proton (H+) acceptor
On the other hand:
Lewis acid is an electron pair acceptor.
Some characteristics of a Lewis acid:
• When hydrogen is connected to an electronegative element such as P, O, N, S or halogens
▪ hydrogen gains a partially positive charge → makes hydrogen act as a Lewis acid
• Positively charged metal ions
