A mixture of a weak acid and its conjugate base or a mixture of a weak base and its conjugate acid is called a buffer solution, or a buffer. Buffer solutions resist a change in pH when small amounts of a strong acid or a strong base are added Figure 1. Figure 1.
The quality of fixation is influenced by pH and the type of ions present. The choice of buffer is based on:. Criteria of a good buffer :. Maximum solubility in water and minimum solubility in all other solvents. Reduced ion effects. Dissociation of buffer least influenced by buffer concentration, temperature and ionic composition.
Resistance to oxidation stable. Inexpensive and easy to prepare. No reaction with fixation. Common Buffers. Phosphate Buffer Sorenson's buffer pH 5. Advantages :. Most physiological of common buffers. Mimics certain components of extracellular fluids.
Non-toxic to cells. Stable for several weeks at 4 C. Disadvantages :. Precipitates more likely to occur during fixation. Tends to form precipitates in presence of calcium ions. Precipitates uranyl acetate and tends to react with lead salts. Becomes slowly contaminated with micro-organisms. Preparation of Buffer. Stock solutions :. Working buffer: 0. Dilute to ml with ddH 2 0 or dilute with fixative. Osmolarity is adjusted by varying the molarity of phosphates or by the addition of sucrose, glucose or sodium chloride.
At pH 7. Cacodylate Buffer arsenate buffer pH Easy to prepare. Stable during storage for long periods of time. Does not support growth of microorganisms. Precipitates usually do not occur. Precipitates do not occur at low concentrations of calcium. Contains arsenic. Unpleasant smell. Preparation of Buffer :. Adjust 50 ml of 0. Buffer may also be made with cacodylic acid. Dilute to ml with ddH 2 or dilute with fixative.
Useful for block staining with uranyl acetate since precipitates do not form. Reacts with aldehydes. Poor buffer at physiological pH. Supports growth of micro-organisms. Contains barbiturate. Sodium veronal barbitone sodium. Sodium acetate anhydrous. Sodium acetate hydrated. Solution is stable and may be stored for some months at 4 C. Working buffer :. Add 0. Solution cannot be stored. Supports growth of bacteria and molds even at 4 C. Crystallizes in absence of osmium tetroxide.
Maximum buffering capacity about 7. Stable indefinitely at room temperature. Useful for fixation of large tissue blocks. Aids penetration of fixative due to extractive effects see disadvantage 1. Not suitable as buffer during primary fixation with osmium tetroxide due to considerable extraction of tissue components.
Use leads to lysis of cytoplasmic matrix and extensive membrane destruction when used with paraformaldehyde fixatives. Use gives poorer results with glutaraldehyde than those obtained with phosphate or cacodylate buffer. Adjust 50 ml of s-collidine stock solution to desired pH with 1N HC1. Dilute to ml with ddH 2 0. Tris buffer. Good buffering capacity at higher pH required for some tissues and some cytochemical procedures.
Must be measured at desired temperature. Adjust pH of 50 ml of stock solution with 0. Adjust 50 ml of stock solution to desired pH with 0. Special Buffers Used for Cytochemical Reactions. Add sodium acetate to acetic acid to give desired pH. Dilute with ddH 2 0 to desired molarity.
Add boric acid to borax solution until desired pH is reached. Dilute to desired molarity with ddH 2 0. Citrate Buffer sodium citrate-citric acid buffer pH Mix citric acid and sodium citrate to give desired pH. Stock solution : 0. Adjust pH with 0. Adjust 0.
This colorless deliquescent salt has a wide range of uses. Sodium acetate is used as the carbon source for culturing bacteria. Sodium acetate is also useful for increasing yields of DNA isolation by ethanol precipitation. Sodium acetate is used in the textile industry to neutralize sulfuric acid waste streams and also as a photoresist while using aniline dyes. It is also a pickling agent in chrome tanning and helps to impede vulcanization of chloroprene in synthetic rubber production. In processing cotton for disposable cotton pads, sodium acetate is used to eliminate the buildup of static electricity. Sodium acetate is used to mitigate water damage to concrete by acting as a concrete sealant , while also being environmentally benign and cheaper than the commonly used epoxy alternative for sealing concrete against water permeation.
Buffers are characterized by the pH range over which they can maintain a more or less constant pH and by their buffer capacity, the amount of strong acid or base that can be absorbed before the pH changes significantly. Although the useful pH range of a buffer depends strongly on the chemical properties of the weak acid and weak base used to prepare the buffer i. If we add so much base to a buffer that the weak acid is exhausted, no more buffering action toward the base is possible. On the other hand, if we add an excess of acid, the weak base would be exhausted, and no more buffering action toward any additional acid would be possible. In fact, we do not even need to exhaust all of the acid or base in a buffer to overwhelm it; its buffering action will diminish rapidly as a given component nears depletion. The buffer capacity is the amount of acid or base that can be added to a given volume of a buffer solution before the pH changes significantly, usually by one unit.
EXP (2): PREPARATION OF BUFFER. • You are provided with M solution of acetic acid and solid sodium acetate, pKa =).Prepare 45ml of a M acetate.
A solution containing appreciable amounts of a weak conjugate acid-base pair is called a buffer solution, or a buffer. Buffer solutions resist a change in pH when small amounts of a strong acid or a strong base are added Figure To illustrate the function of a buffer solution, consider a mixture of roughly equal amounts of acetic acid and sodium acetate. The presence of a weak conjugate acid-base pair in the solution imparts the ability to neutralize modest amounts of added strong acid or base. Figure
Слушайте меня внимательно… ГЛАВА 112 - Надеюсь, вы знаете, что делаете, директор, - холодно сказал Джабба. - Мы упускаем последнюю возможность вырубить питание. Фонтейн промолчал. И словно по волшебству в этот момент открылась дверь, и в комнату оперативного управления, запыхавшись, вбежала Мидж. Поднявшись на подиум, она крикнула: - Директор. На коммутатор поступает сообщение.
Ему понадобилось всего несколько мгновений, чтобы принять решение. Фонтейн схватил со стола заседаний трубку внутреннего телефона и набрал номер шифровалки. В трубке послышались короткие гудки.
В том, что касалось Мидж Милкен, существовали две вещи, которые никому не позволялось ставить под сомнение. Первой из них были предоставляемые ею данные. Бринкерхофф терпеливо ждал, пока она изучала цифры. - Хм-м, - наконец произнесла .
