How to Make a Weight-to-Volume Solution?

Chemists have many different ways in which they can describe the concentration of chemicals in solution. One of the most basic descriptions is the weight per volume, which gives the weight of chemi... Read More »

What is a buffer solution used for?

Buffering solutions bring a reaction to a desired pH and stabilize it at that pH. Many chemical reactions need a narrow pH range and simultaneously alter the pH of the solution outside that range. ... Read More »

Who discovered the buffer solution?

Danish biochemist Soren Peter Laurtiz Sorensen (1868-1939) developed buffer solutions to maintain the constant pH of chemical solutions. These buffers are sometimes known as Sorensen buffers. Soren... Read More »

What Happens When a Base Is Added to a Buffer Solution?

Buffer solutions resist changes in pH. In a normal (unbuffered) solution, the introduction of a few drops of acid or base could dramatically alter the pH. Adding just 1 oz. of concentrated (31 perc... Read More »
