Modern methods for mass production of biological agents and fine chemicals require precise control of pH.
Riding the wind and ocean currents, hordes of blue, alien-like creatures descend upon Southern state coastal waters, entangling beach goers in poisonous tentacles and delivering painful stings
Sometimes, solutions for hard problems can turn out to be pretty basic.
Scientists with NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center say they have discovered that the building blocks of life can be created and maintained in extreme heat.
Scientists have developed a new kind of tiny motor — which they term a "microrocket" — that can propel itself through acidic environments, such as the human stomach, without any external energy source, opening the way to a variety of medical and industrial applications.
Organic Soap and Spa, manufacturer of over 150 organic and natural bath, body and beauty products released a new addition to their Black Cherry line of products.

Acid rain is any form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that is possesses high levels of hydrogen ions. It can have harmful effects on aquatic animals, plants, and infrastructure. Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which react with the water molecules within the atmosphere to produce acids. Nitrogen oxides can be produced naturally by lightening strikes. Sulfur dioxide can be produced naturally by volcanic eruptions. The chemicals that are...
In chemistry, salt is a general term used for ionic compounds composed of positively charged cations and negatively charged anions, so that the product is neutral and without a net charge. These ions can be inorganic (Cl-) as well as organic (CH3-COO-) and monoatomic (F-) as well as polyatomic ions (SO42-). Solutions of salts in water are called electrolytes. Electrolytes as well as molten salts conduct electricity. Zwitterions are salts that contain an anionic center and a cationic...
