Abstract

The software EQUIL (1, 2) allows calculations of ion activities, relative supersaturations and charge balance, when concentrations and pH are entered. In a well-defined solution, charge balance is expected to be zero at any measured pH and, therefore, calculations of pH should be possible. This concept was examined with titrations of HEPES buffer (3).
