Therefore, we cannot state categorically which of the above two pathways, or for that matter a different one, is the one that operates in reality.
Let’s consider the ions NH4 + and NH2 − and compare them with NH3 . The nitrogen in ammonia is clearly trivalent. In NH4 + and NH2 − , nitrogen uses four and two electrons, respectively, to form bonds with hydrogen atoms. In addition, the nitrogen has lost one of its original valence electrons in NH4 + ; in NH2 − , the nitrogen has gained an extra electron relative to its free atomic state. To account for these excess charges, it is helpful to recognize that valence is the number of electrons an atom uses in forming bonds plus the net number of electrons it has lost in forming the molecule/ion in question.
12) Being fast and reversible, PTs are typically thermodynamically controlled. In other words, for complete PT to occur, the proton donor must be a stronger acid than the protonated proton acceptor. Stated differently, a proton wants to be bonded to the strongest base around. Tables of pKa values are thus well suited for predicting the direction of PT reactions. 9 ELEMENTARY ASSOCIATIVE AND DISSOCIATIVE PROCESSES (A AND D) Two other elementary polar reactions are worth mentioning right away.
