    Why are we deprotonating the carboxylic acid that is initially dissolved in the dichloromethane?

    By deprotonating the carboxylic acid, it becomes soluble in the aqueous HCl extracting layer.

    By deprotonating the carboxylic acid, it becomes soluble in the aqueous NaOH extracting layer.

    There is no deprotonation taking place. The carboxylic acid is simply more soluble in the extracting HCl layer.
