Latest Acid-base chemistry Stories
Researchers are developing a new type of biological and chemical sensor that has few moving parts, is low-cost and yet highly sensitive, sturdy and long-lasting.
Color change confirms a new way to harvest energy from sunlight.
Recent reports warn that toxic chemicals in plastic bottles, such as BPA, get into the water they carry. Additionally, there is substantial emerging evidence that acidic body conditions promote a wide variety of disease.

COVINGTON, La., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- With football season in full swing, fanatics are throwing viewing parties and parking lot tailgates full of classic Americana favorites, like hot wings, cheeseburgers and nachos.
WENDELL, N.C., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Fortrans Inc. announces three new updated pH control and monitoring systems that use CO2 gas to neutralize high pH process water and lower total suspended solids in process water at ready-mixed concrete plants.
Water molecules are continuously forming short-lived networks called clusters.
The degradation of proteins and other macromolecules in cells is vital to survival.
Using a chemical trick that allows them to change the acidity of a solution almost instantly, a team at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has demonstrated a simple and effective technique for quantifying how the stability of nanoparticle solutions change when the acidity of their environment suddenly changes.
The increasing acidity of the world's oceans - and that acidity's growing threat to marine species - are definitive proof that the atmospheric carbon dioxide that is causing climate change is also negatively affecting the marine environment.
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...
