2 8.2: Buffer Solutions • Buffers resist large pH changes upon addition of an acid or base. • Contains: – Weak acid + conjugate base or – Weak base + conjugate acid • One component neutralizes acids; the other neutralizes bases. Unbuffered: 1.00 L of Pure Water: Add 10.0 ml of 2.0M HCl Buffer: 1.00 L of 1.50M Acetic Acid/ 1.20M Sodium Acetate: Add 10.0 ml of 2.0M HCl pH = 1.69 pH = 4.65 pH = 7.00 pH = 4.63
3 Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation For a buffer solution containing a weak acid and its conjugate base: Notes: Equation was derived by assuming M - x M. [conjugage base]/[acid] should lie between 0.10 and 10.0 Molarity of each component should exceed K a by factor of 100. 1.50M Acetic Acid / 1.20 M Sodium Acetate: K a = 1.8 x 10 -5 ; pK a = 4.74 [ ] [] 65 . 4 09 . 0 74 . 4 5 . 1 1.2 log 4.74 pH 10 = = + = [ ] HA A log pK pH - 10 a + =
