About this Textbook

Understanding acid-base equilibria made easy for students in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, environmental and earth sciences. Solving chemical problems, be it in education or in real life, often requires the understanding of the acid-base equilibria behind them. Based on many years of teaching experience, Heike Kahlert and Fritz Scholz present a powerful tool to meet such challenges. They provide a simple guide to the fundamentals and applications of acid-base diagrams, avoiding complex mathematics. This textbook is richly illustrated and has full color throughout. It offers learning features such as boxed results and a collection of formulae.

About the authors

Heike Kahlert is lecturer at the University of Greifswald, Germany. Fritz Scholz is Professor at the same university. He has founded the Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry Springer) and serves as Editor-in-Chief since that time. He is also the editor of the series “Monographs in Electrochemistry”(Springer) in which modern topics of electrochemistry are presented. Besides he is author and editor of numerous successful books such as the "Electrochemical Dictionary" or "Electroanalytical Methods".

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This monograph presents the theory and rationale behind a teaching aid for the nonmathematical determination of the pH of aqueous solutions by using pH-logc^D[i diagrams. … The authors discuss complex multibasic acids and present standard diagrams for a number of known weak acids. … It should … be part of any physical science library. Summing Up: Recommended. Researchers, faculty.” (J. M. Tomich, Choice, Vol. 51 (11), July, 2014)
