Ionization

Ionization --> ionisation

(Science: chemistry, radiobiology) Any process by which a neutral atom gains or loses electrons, thus acquiring a net charge, as the dissociation of a substance in solution into ions or ion production by the passage of radioactive particles.

high temperatures, electrical discharges or nuclear radiations can cause ionisation.

water ionizer

is there any chance a deepwell water that goes through the process of ionization be free from any microbial contaminants such as coliform?

HELP HELP HELP

... halirous, alextemplet. to be honest, i like it!!! :D it's because we put certain chemicals to the solution. the attraction (electronegatifity, ionization, etc) between those compound starts the reaction. and the energy within them allow it to react. hehe... yup! alchemy has the answer for it!!!

Re: possible peptide formation and ratio of acid to base

... pH – pKa3 = log[gamma-COO-]/[gamma-COOH] What you should find is that two out of three of these equilibria heavily favor one of the ionization states, while the other has a significant proportion of both ionization states.

Re: Finding the net charge of amino acid

... just do the arithematic, saving Henderson-Hasselbach for questions about "% ionized" or "fraction of sample in some or the other ionization state" etc. Sorry, you do have the complete Henderson-Hasselbach equation there. I didn't look at the formulae carefully enough. As ...
