Problem

For the following reaction, indicate which reactant is the Lewis acid and which is the Lewis base.

Al3+ + 6H2O ⇌ Al(OH)3 + 3H3O+

a) Al3+ is the Lewis acid.

b) Al3+ is the Lewis base.

c) H2O is the Lewis acid.

d) H2O is the Lewis base.

e) This is not acid-base reaction.

Solution

Lewis acid (some characteristics)

• electron pair acceptor
• has H+ or metal in it
• less than 8 electrons on central atom
