Spanish term or phrase: Que pueda ceder "n" protones
For all you analytical chemists out there! The text is about acid-base equilibria:

"De la misma forma, un ácido poliprótico, que pueda ceder "n" protones en disolución acuosa, se disociará de la siguiente forma..."

Any idea how we render "que pueda ceder"?

Thanks in advance for your help and any hints about where I could find a decent online Sp-Eng chemistry glossary.
