do lewis theory of acid and bases applicable for all compounds and if yes then please give examples
Asked by harrytheultimateguy | 26th Nov, 2009, 10:55: AM
According to Lewis theory of acids and bases, acids are species which accept a pair of electrons and bases are those substances which donate a pair of electrons. So, those species which are electron deficient can act as lewis acids. Example: BF3, AlCl3 etc.
Those species which have a lone pair of electrons and are electron rich can act as lewis bases. Example: NH3, H2O etc.
