Is it possible for protons to react and leave the atom?

The only way for protons in the nucleus to leave an atom is if the element changes to a new element.

So if you have a chemical reaction and you can change what element an atom is, you are changing the number of protons in the atom.

 

So I would say, Yes, a proton can react and leave the atom.
