I am aware of the definitions of these words. but, honestly, we can expect few questions on these two tags. Hence can we have one as the synonym of the other, and retain acid-base tag?

Yep. Tags are for filtering, so we ought to synonymify acid,base,acidic,basic,basicity/etc to acid-base. (we only really need to make two-ish synonyms, the rest will be covered since the autocomplete will pop up the synonyms)

I can think of enough questions on this though, so we ought to have the tag.

Though, then again, there's not much use for filtering acid-base questions. I still say we keep the tag with synonyms-- acidic/basic nature is a pretty extensive topic (not that I'd know much about it)

  • $\begingroup$ How do you envision a question about pKa being tagged? Just acid-base, or would that get another tag as well (for example pka)? $\endgroup$ – Andrew Apr 26 '12 at 20:49
  • $\begingroup$ @Andrew I'd prefer it to keep [acid-base]. On physics.se we're having to do some tag cleanups because of vague/equivalent tags. Let's try to avoid it... Remember that tags are for filtering. $\endgroup$ – ManishEarth Apr 27 '12 at 0:46
