Formulation of the System of Isohydric Solutions
The isohydricity (pH constancy) as the property referred to mixtures of acids or bases, is illustrated on a simple example of the solutions: HL (C0, mol/L) and HL (C mol/L) mixed according to titrimetric mode (pH titration). A new derivation of the Michalowski formula C0=C+C2·10PK1 expressing this property is presented, and its applicability for determination of pK1 = – logK1 value is indicated. The principle of the isohydric method of pK1 determination is also outlined.
