Fundamentals According to the Bronsted-lowery theory, a conjugate acid is a species which is formed by reaction of proton with a base. a conjugate base is a species which is formed when acid loses a proton. The reaction representing the formation of conjugate acid and conjugate base is as follow:
Acid donates hydrogen ion and base is the acceptor of proton. The conjugate acid base pair differs by one proton. Conjugate acid is formed when a hydrogen ion is added to the base. Whereas, the conjugate base is formed when an acid donates its proton (hydrogen ion). Therefore, the base, hydrogen phosphate ion reacts with a proton to form a conjugate acid.
