Is CAPS an acid or base? If it is an acid, what is its base? If it is a base, what is its acid?
Also, is Tricine an acid or base? If it is an acid, what is its base? If it is a base, what is its acid?

Thanks.

  1. I partially answered your last post to the buffer question just a minute or so ago. As for CAPS, I haven't the foggiest. Do you know what CAPS stands for? If so, go to www.google.com and type in CAPS. That may get it. If you know the name, then type the name in and see what you get. As for tricine, here is a page that will help you.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tricine
