Hello Everyone
I am looking for names of real world Tri, quad, penta, or hexa protic bases that ARE NOT IONS that are used in chemistry. Do such bases even exist?

Is Alumimum Hydroxide Al(OH)3 an example of a triprotic base?

I am looking for names, for example EDTA (Which is a hexaprotic acid), but for bases. and their PKA values.

YES, I have searched tri, quad, penta, and Hexaprotic bases in google and have not found much info on polyprotic bases that are not in ion forms.

Any help you can offer would be great thank you.

Might be easier to search for acids.  E.g. phosphoric acid can give up three protons to form phosphate, the conjugate base.

If you flex the muscle in your arm, an idea may occur to you.
