Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bases are defined by the Bronsted-Lowry theory chemical substances that can accept a proton, i.e., a hydrogen ion. In water this is equivalent to a Hydronium ion). The Lewis theory instead defines a Base as an electron pair donor. The Lewis definition is broader — all Bronsted-Lowry Bases are also Lewis Bases.
