The capability of a gaseous Brønsted acid HB to deliver protons to a base is usually described by the gas-phase acidity (GA) value of the acid. However, GA values are standard Gibbs energy differences and refer to individual gas pressures of 1 bar for acid HB, base B(-) , and proton H(+) . We show that the GA value is not suited to describe the bulk acidity of a gaseous acid. Here the pressure dependence of the activities of HB, H(HB)(n) (+) , and B(HB)(m) (-) that result from gaseous autoprotolysis have to be considered. In this work, the pressure-dependent absolute chemical potential of the proton in the representative gaseous proton acids CH(4) , NH(3) , H(2) O, HF, and HCl was worked out and the general theory to describe bulk gas phase acidity-that can directly be compared with solution acidity-was developed.
