Complete the equation for the reaction between each Lewis acid-base pair. In each equation, label which starting material is the Lewis acid and which is the Lewis base; use curved arrows to show the flow of electrons in each reaction. In doing this problem, it is essential that you show valence electrons for all atoms participating in each reaction. (a) (b) (c) (d)

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Using curved arrows to indicate flow of electrons, a reaction equation between 2-chloro-2-methylpropane and aluminum trichloride has to be given and label the Lewis acid and the Lewis base in the reactants.

Concept Introduction:

Lewis acid:  These are substance that donates proton and accepts a pair of nonbonding electrons.

Lewis base: These are substances that accept proton and donate a pair of nonbonding electrons .

Conjugate acid:  It is formed when a base accepts a proton from an acid.

Conjugate base:  Transformation of proton from an acid to a base leads to formation of new species called conjugate base.

Lewis structure: This is only way to show the sharing of electrons between atom in polar covalent bonds or covalent bond.  This is often called Lewis structure.  This structure denotes valence electrons of an atom by dots and also it shows the way of valence electron distributed within a molecule.
