Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

Buffers provide an essential acid-base balancing mechanism—in consumer products, foods, even living cells! What are buffers made of? How does a buffer work? Can you design a buffer to be effective in a given pH range? Is there such a thing as an ideal buffer? Excite and challenge your students to answer these questions and more as they prepare a range of acetic acid/sodium acetate buffers in the lab and investigate their properties. The experiments in this kit provide a wonderful, culminating experience in acid-base chemistry that will take your students to a new level of understanding and awareness. Includes reproducible student handouts, detailed background information, Teacher Notes with sample data and answers to all questions, and all necessary chemicals and consumable supplies.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
Fifteen reusable 24-well reaction plates are recommended and available separately.
