17 Reactions of Anions with Water Anions are bases.As such, they can react with water in a hydrolysis reaction to form OH− and the conjugate acid:X−(aq) + H2O(l)HX(aq) + OH−(aq)
18 Reactions of Cations with Water Cations with acidic protons (like NH4+) will lower the pH of a solution.Most metal cations that are hydrated in solution also lower the pH of the solution.
19 Reactions of Cations with Water Attraction between nonbonding electrons on oxygen and the metal causes a shift of the electron density in water.This makes the O-H bond more polar and the water more acidic.Greater charge and smaller size make a cation more acidic.
20 Effect of Cations and Anions An anion that is the conjugate base of a strong acid will not affect the pH.An anion that is the conjugate base of a weak acid will increase the pH.A cation that is the conjugate acid of a weak base will decrease the pH.
21 Effect of Cations and Anions Cations of the strong Arrhenius bases will not affect the pH.Other metal ions will cause a decrease in pH.When a solution contains both the conjugate base of a weak acid and the conjugate acid of a weak base, the affect on pH depends on the Ka and Kb values.
22 Factors Affecting Acid Strength The more polar the H-X bond and/or the weaker the H-X bond, the more acidic the compound.Acidity increases from left to right across a row and from top to bottom down a group.
23 Factors Affecting Acid Strength In oxyacids, in which an OH is bonded to another atom, Y, the more electronegative Y is, the more acidic the acid.
24 Factors Affecting Acid Strength For a series of oxyacids, acidity increases with the number of oxygens.
25 Factors Affecting Acid Strength Resonance in the conjugate bases of carboxylic acids stabilizes the base and makes the conjugate acid more acidic.
26 Lewis Acids Lewis acids are defined as electron-pair acceptors. Atoms with an empty valence orbital can be Lewis acids.
27 Lewis Bases Lewis bases are defined as electron-pair donors. Anything that could be a Brønsted–Lowry base is a Lewis base.Lewis bases can interact with things other than protons, however.
