Different types of bases
There are also different types of bases, maybe weak, maybe strong:
- Organic molecules
You can think of amines, and of amino acids (see module 11)
- Negative ions
In principle, all negative ions can receive, capture H+ ions.
So they are always bases, strong or weak.
- some positive ions
Those cations, after having donated H+, can take back that H+ ion and thus act as a base.
- Some neutral molecules; more hereover later.
More information about acids and bases can be found in module 9.
