A unified pH scale for all phases.

Abstract

Arrhenius, Brønsted, and Lowry defined acids as proton donors and bases as proton acceptors, a concept nowadays known as Brønsted acidity. It is used in all chemistry-related areas including materials science energy storage, catalysis, environmental science, and molecular biology. In aqueous solution Brønsted acidity is expressed quantitatively as the pH… (More)
