As far as autoprotolysis constant (N,N- dimethyl formamide (pKs = 18.
Autoprotolysis is an acid-base reaction between identical solvent molecules is which some act as an acid and others as a base.
2]O is amphiprotic solvent, where autoprotolysis is observable.
Although water and alcohol are both amphiprotonic solvents, the autoprotolysis occurs to a higher extent in water than in tert-butanol.
Sulfuric acid undergoes self-ionization or autoprotolysis in the same manner as water and many other protonic solvents [4]: [Mathematical Expression Omitted] Just as the acidity of an aqueous solution is increased by increasing the concentration of [H.
The steep rise in acidity in the region of the pure solvent is a consequence of the very small autoprotolysis constant which is comparable to that of water.
