Definitions of Acids and Bases, and the Role of Water
The Brnsted Definition of Acids and Bases. The Brnsted, or Brnsted-Lowry, model is based on a simple assumption: Acids donate H + ions to another ion or molecule, which acts as a base. The dissociation of water, for example, involves the transfer of an H + ion from one water molecule to another to form H 3 O + and OH-ions.
