Solution: Classify each of these compounds as a Bronsted-Lowry acid, a Bronsted-Lowry Base, or neither.H2SO4HBrH3PO4(CH3)3NCH3NH2NH3KClCHCl3

Solution: Classify each of these compounds as a Bronsted-Lowry acid, a Bronsted-Lowry Base, or neither.H2SO4HBrH3PO4(CH3)3NCH3NH2NH3KClCHCl3

Problem

Classify each of these compounds as a Bronsted-Lowry acid, a Bronsted-Lowry Base, or neither.

H2SO4
HBr
H3PO4
(CH3)3N
CH3NH2
NH3
KCl
CHCl3

Solution

We’re being asked to classify each of the given compounds as a Bronsted-Lowry acid, a Bronsted-Lowry Base, or neither.


Let’s define a Bronsted Lowry-Base and Bronsted-Lowry acid first.

Bronsted-Lowry acid → proton (H+) donor

Bronsted-Lowry base → proton (H+) acceptor


H2SO4

H2SO4 has a proton that it can donate
