Deprotonation of Acids

  1. Mar 1, 2004 #1
    Hi,

    I need help in finding some information regarding deprotonation (specifically acids). I know that it is the removal of a hydrogen atom from a compound, but I would like to know some in-depth info on how the reactions occur.

    Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Deprotonation usually occurs through a base (hydrolysis).
