What is responsible for converting H2CO3 to HCO3- and H+ ...

When you have an ionically bonded compound (such as H2CO3) it isn't a single molecule, but is two separate ions that happen to form a lattice when they're solidified. If they's dissolved in solution the lattice disintegrates and the ions become separate. So long as the compound exists they're ...

... atoms are put together.” – In other words, their structure! Q: I don’t follow. R: So in the rock, the atoms are arranged in a sort of crystal lattice [pic]. It’s more complicated than you might expect, but it’s fairly uniform. Now, in a living thing, the structure is MUCH more complex. Q: ...

Re: DNA attachment to tubes

Does DNA attach more to plastic or glass?! Just a guess mind you, but I would think glass would have less bonding, based on the crystal lattice structure of Si (Si in lattice form is stable). Like I said though, just a guess.

Clathrate, Hydration Shell

... and molecules may move around, about, in and out... but they all orient themselves around the ion based on its charge. A clathrate structure is a lattice structure... fixed and ordered like you said. Solid water (aka ice) forms a clathrate structure.
