Sometimes, solutions for hard problems can turn out to be pretty basic. That's especially true for a team of researchers at the Office of Science's Brookhaven National Laboratory (Brookhaven Lab), where the solution for a hard problem they were working on turned out to be pretty basic . . . and also a bit acidic. The hard problem they were working on was how to store hydrogen fuel. Hydrogen gas (H2) is a clean and powerful fuel, but it's also extremely light, which makes it difficult and...

WENDELL, N.C., Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Fortrans introduces the Model 5000SP, a small, portable pH control system that uses low-cost and safe carbon dioxide gas to lower pH. The use and high cost of hazardous acids can be easily eliminated. The 5000SP can be equipped with a peristaltic chemical feed pump to inject alkaline solutions to raise pH, or both the feed pump and the CO2 injector-diffuser may be installed to maintain any pH level required. The Model 5000SP is a small...

Los Alamos team sees unprecedented proof of ion's role in enzymatic process A Los Alamos National Laboratory research team has harnessed neutrons to view for the first time the critical role that an elusive molecule plays in certain biological reactions. The effort could aid in treatment of peptic ulcers or acid reflux disease, or allow for more efficient conversion of woody waste into transportation fuels. In a paper appearing this week in Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Los Alamos...

Studies of the probable role of organic acids in lakes indicate that power plant emissions may have had a smaller impact on lake acidity than previously assessed During the 1970s and 1980s, researchers and policymakers became increasingly worried about multiple consequences of acidic emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides from the stacks of power stations, and eventually they were controlled. In Europe, there was much concern about the effects on Sweden's many lakes, which were found...

A simple cut to the skin unleashes a complex cascade of chemistry to stem the flow of blood. Now, scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have used evolutionary clues to reveal how a key clotting protein assembles. The finding sheds new light on common bleeding disorders. The long tube-shaped protein with a vital role in blood clotting is called von Willebrand Factor (VWF). Made in cells that form the inner lining of blood vessels, VWF circulates in the blood...

Study of pH in anthurium spathe provides clues to generating blues Flower color in plants is determined by pigments such as aurones, anthocyanins, and carotenoids. Research has found that the ultimate color displayed is dependent not only on the pigment present, but also on other factors, including cell shape, presence of metal ions, and pH, among others. Information about the role of pH in creating color has allowed plant geneticists to engineer new hues, adding to the beauty and diversity...

Ocean Acidification
2013-04-01 10:32:20

Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...

A pH meter, typically consisting of a special measuring probe connected to an electronic meter, is an electronic instrument used to measure the pH (acidity or alkalinity) of a liquid. The probe measures pH as the hydrogen ion activity that surrounds a thin-walled glass bulb at its tip. A small voltage is produce by the probe that measures and displays pH units by the meter. The meter circuit displays voltmeter in pH units instead of volts. The circuit of the pH meter consists of operational...
