Acids composed of hydrogen, oxygen, and some othe element
An anion formed from an oxoacid
Lewis Acid
Any ionic or molecular spedies that can accept a pair of electrons in the formation of a coordinate covalent bond
Lewis Base
Any ionic or molecular species that can donate a pair of electrons in the formation of a coordinate covalent bond
