Conduct library research to find out about the buffering of solutions. Include information on why solutions are buffered and what kinds of materials are used as buffers. Write a brief report on your findings.
Step 11 of 2
Buffers are solution made to resist change in pH of certain solution. A buffer solution is basically composed of a weak conjugate acid-base pair. The presence of a weak conjugate acid and weak conjugate base will resist change in pH to maintain the pH range needed.
One of the most common application of this buffer solution is in pharmacy, where medicine in solution needed to maintain certain pH to assure its efficacy.
