- Strong and Weak Acids/Bases 3 answers
It is often said that stronger acids have weak conjugate bases and vice versa. Yet also in organic chemistry if an acid is proven to have a stable conjugate base it is said to dissociate more, which means it is stronger. Aren't these contradictory statements? What exactly should a strong acid have- a strong or a weak conjugate base?
