In the reaction between CV+ and –OH, one species is acting as the Lewis base, the other as the Lewis acid. (Note: A Lewis acid is not necessarily a proton donor. It is, however, always an electron pair acceptor).

Which reagent is the Lewis acid?

A. CV+
B. –OH

Which reagent is the Lewis base?

A. CV+
B. –OH

Which orbital of the Lewis acid is involved in the reaction?

A. HOMO
B. LUMO

Which orbital of the Lewis base is involved in the reaction?
