Abstract [en]

A heterogeneous pH buffer based on a colloidal emulsion containing ion-exchanger and lipophilic base is described that can be integrated into hydrogels without affecting their ion-exchange properties. Each sphere works on the basis of reversible ion-exchange of hydrogen ions with solution cations, acting as a pH buffer while staying removed from solution in the nonpolar core of the spheres. The ion-exchange mechanism is supported by titration experiments in aqueous emulsion, showing that the nature and concentration of the exchanging solution cations influences the buffer action, with increasing lipophilicity moving the equilibrium to lower pH values. Agarose gels with entrapped pH buffer emulsions and mounted in a transport cell are shown by zero current potentiometry to exhibit negligible permselective properties above an ionic strength of 1 mM, a behavior no different from unmodified agarose, with an observed ion-exchanger concentration of 7 mM in dry agarose. This suggests that such pH buffers do not give rise to substantial ion-exchange properties of the gel material. In a first attempt to control the pH in the vicinity of an electrode surface by this approach, the emulsion was entrapped in an agarose gel in direct contact with a pH electrode, demonstrating the ability to buffer such gel films.
