Investigate the differences between an organic acid and organic base

Organic AcidOrganic Base
Organic compounds behaving like acidsOrganic compounds behaving like bases
Relative stability of the conjugate base determines the strength of acidInductive effect determines the bases’ strength
Releases proton in aqueous solutionOrganic bases do not always accept protons
Examples: carboxyl group, sulphonic group, hydroxyl group, phenol group, thiol group.Examples: amines and nitrogen containing heterocyclic compounds.
