When we look for the conjugate base of a compound, we seek to remove an H+ from the initial compound. Essentially, this reduces the compound’s overall charge. Not only are we losing a hydrogen, but a plus charge as well.
So our compounds would look as follows:
Give the conjugate base for each compound below.
