aprotic (solvent)

Non-protogenic (in a given situation). (With extremely strong Br√łnsted acids or bases, solvents that are normally aprotic may accept or lose a proton. For example, acetonitrile is in most instances an aprotic solvent, but it is protophilic in the presence of concentrated sulfuric acid and protogenic in the presence of potassium tert-butoxide. Similar considerations apply to benzene, trichloromethane, etc.)
