Pergantis, Spiros A.; Saridakis, Lakovos; Lyratzakis, Alexandros; Mavroudakis, Leonidas; Montagnon, Tamsyn – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Teaching the concept of pH buffers is considered to be important both in the final high-school years and at the early undergraduate level. Here, we propose the use of pH-log C diagrams to investigate the properties of pH buffers. This graphical approach is extremely simple to employ because it only requires drawing a simple square that can then be…
