Acid-base chemistry is important in a wide variety of every day applications. The rates of reactions that maintain our lives all critically depend on the acidity or basicity of solutions. Acids and bases and their equilibria are also important industrially and in a variety of chemical processes. They are intimately coupled to many of the processes involved in synthetic and analytical chemistry, including reaction rates and selectivity, solubility equilibria, partition equilibria, catalytic cycles and chromatographic retention times. Furthermore, mechanistic investigations and the development of manufacturing processes rely frequently in acid-base chemistry. Acids and bases are consequently important from simple reactions in the chemical laboratory to those complex reactions in our environment (acid rain, corrosion) and in industrial processes.

An introduction to basic and intermediate aspects of acid-base chemistry and their equilibria is presented in the topics listed above.
