Common Ion Effect
Compared with pure water, the solubility of an ionic compound is less in aqueous solutions containing a common ion (one also produced by dissolution…
Buffers
A solution containing appreciable amounts of a weak conjugate acid-base pair is called a buffer solution, or a buffer. Buffer solutions resist a…
Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation
The ionization-constant expression for a solution of a weak acid can be written as: Rearranging to solve for [H3O+] yields: Taking the negative…
Calculating pH Changes in a Buffer Solution
A buffer can prevent a sudden drop or increase in the pH of a solution after the addition of a strong acid or base up to its buffering capacity;…
Buffer Effectiveness
Buffer solutions do not have an unlimited capacity to keep the pH relatively constant . Instead, the ability of a buffer solution to resist changes…
Acid-Base Titration Curves
A titration curve is a plot of some solution property versus the amount of added titrant. For acid-base titrations, solution pH is a useful property…
Titration Calculations: Strong Acid - Strong Base
Calculating pH for Titration Solutions: Strong Acid/Strong Base A titration is carried out for 25.00 mL of 0.100 M HCl (strong acid) with 0.100 M of…
Titration Calculations: Weak Acid - Weak Base
Calculating pH for Titration Solutions: Weak Acid/Strong Base For the titration of 25.00 mL of 0.100 M CH3CO2H with 0.100 M NaOH, the reaction can be…
Indicators
Certain organic substances change color in dilute solution when the hydronium ion concentration reaches a particular value. For example,…
Titration of a Polyprotic Acid
A polyprotic acid contains more than one ionizable hydrogen and undergoes a stepwise ionization process.  If the acid dissociation constants of…
Solubility Equilibria
Solubility equilibria are established when the dissolution and precipitation of a solute species occur at equal rates. These equilibria underlie many…
Factors Affecting Solubility
Compared with pure water, the solubility of an ionic compound is less in aqueous solutions containing a common ion (one also produced by dissolution…
Formation of Complex Ions
A type of Lewis acid-base chemistry involves the formation of a complex ion (or a coordination complex) comprising a central atom, typically a…
Precipitation of Ions
Predicting Precipitation The equation that describes the equilibrium between solid calcium carbonate and its solvated ions is: It is important to…
Qualitative Analysis
For solutions containing mixtures of different cations, the identity of each cation can be determined by qualitative analysis. This technique…
Synthesis, Cellular Delivery and <em>In vivo</em> Application of Dendrimer-based pH Sensors
The development of fluorescent indicators represented a revolution for life sciences. Genetically encoded and synthetic fluorophores with sensing…
Synthesis of High Purity Nonsymmetric Dialkylphosphinic Acid Extractants
We present the synthesis of (2,3-dimethylbutyl)(2,4,4'-trimethylpentyl)phosphinic acid as an example to demonstrate a method for the synthesis of…
Sulfate Separation by Selective Crystallization with a Bis-iminoguanidinium Ligand
A simple and effective method for selective sulfate separation from aqueous solutions by crystallization with a bis-guanidinium ligand,…
