Autoprotolysis

In autoprotolysis a proton is transferred between two identical molecules, one of which acts as a Brønsted acid, releasing a proton which is accepted by the other molecule acting as a Brønsted base.[1] For example, water undergoes autoprotolysis in the self-ionization of water reaction. It is a type of molecular autoionization.

For example, ammonia in its purest form may undergo autoprotolysis:

Another example is acetic acid:
