Buffers 1.) A buffered solution resists changes in pH when acids or bases are added Buffer: is a mixture of a weak acid and its conjugate base Must be comparable amounts of acid & base For an organism to survive, it must control the pH of each subcellular compartments Enzyme-catalyzed reactions are pH dependent Bacteria growing in hot springs (acidic pH) Bacteria growing in lung tissues (neutral pH) Thermophilic archaea Picrophilus oshimae and Picrophilus torridus grow at pH =0.7 (Stomach acid 1-3 pH) Nature (London) (1995), 375(6534),

**Monoprotic Acid-Base Equilibria**

Buffers 4.) Why Does a Buffer Resist Changes in pH? Strong acid or base is consumed by B or BH+ Maximum capacity to resist pH change occurs at pH=pKa Buffer Capacity (b): measure of a solutions resistance to pH change 5.) Choosing a Buffer Choose a buffer with pKa as close as possible to desired pH Useful buffer range is pKa ± 1 pH units Buffer pH depends on temperature and ionic strength activity coefficients where Ca and Cb are the number of moles of strong acid and strong base per liter needed to produce a unit change in pH

34
**When preparing a buffer, you need to monitor the pH.**

Can not assume the added HA and A- will yield the desired pH. pH dependent on: - activity - temperature - ionic strength

35
**Wide number of buffers available that cover an essential complete range of pHs.**

Choose a buffer with a pKa as close as possible to the desired pH.
