Have you learnt chemistry or heard of a buffer? In fact, buffer solutions are used in many industries but it can be complicated to understand the whole picture.
If you are trying to find out more about buffers, you can find all the information you need in this book. In the first chapter, the authors provide a clear and concise definition of buffers. After knowing what a buffer is, you can then move on to heavier stuff such as factors affecting a buffer, preparation of buffers and examples of buffer solutions.
There are many ways to prepare a buffer and you can design your own buffer solutions with different types of components. However, there are too many factors to consider in designing a buffer. The factors include suitability of compounds used, concentration of each compound, ionic strength of the buffer and optimal temperature for the buffer to function. The inter-relationship between interdependent factors and ways to compensate them are clearly explained in this book.
I strongly recommend this book to you if you are interested in exploring how buffer works. I am sure you will find it interesting to understand the chemistry behind buffer solutions which can resist pH changes.
