Step by Step Solution

Acid-base reaction

In an acid-base reaction, the acid compound releases its proton to the base and forms its respective products.

Formation of the product (salt and water)

a. The given compound has OH as a functional group and OH has two lone pairs. Therefore, the given compound is a base, and it abstracts the proton from and forms its product.

Formation of products

b. The given compound has and has one lone pair of electrons. Therefore, the given compound is a base, and it abstracts the proton from and forms its product.

Formation of products

c. The given compound has ether as a functional group and oxygen has two lone pairs of electrons. Therefore, the given compound is a base, and it abstracts the proton from and forms its product.

Formation of products

d. The given compound has tertiary amine as a functional group and N has one lone pair of electrons. Therefore, the given compound is a base, and it abstracts the proton from the and forms its product.

Formation of products
