Buffer solutions are used to keep pH levels constant in a number of chemical reactions. This is essential for most forms of life that survive only in a relatively small pH range. Blood is an example of buffer solution. More »

In chemistry, a buffer is a substance that is able to resist changes in pH when it is a part of a solution. Buffers are added to solutions to resist acidic or basic compounds. More »

According to a 1963 study at Harvard University, carbon dioxide, bicarbonate and carbonate act as buffers to fluctuating hydrogen ion concentrations in natural sources of unprocessed water, helping the water maintain a r... More »

Buffer solutions are crucial in reactions that require specific pH ranges for them to optimally work because they can resist the changes in pH. They help in neutralization reactions. More »

Buffer solutions play a large role in biochemical functions. Because buffers resist changes in pH levels, they are used to regulate biological functions that only occur at certain pH levels. Buffers can also be used to s... More »

Unsaturated solutions are solutions that contain less solute than the actual amount of solute that the solvent can dissolve. If more solutes can be dissolved in the solution, the solution is still considered unsaturated.... More »

Carbonated water, the water-sugar solution used for making rock candy and rain clouds are all examples of supersaturated solutions. Supersaturated solutions consist of an over-abundance of solvents in liquids or gases co... More »
