I am not from a chemistry background, so please bear with me. I am trying to find half-life values for (H+, CO2, HCO3, lactate )
I've got half-life values by searching in the litreture:
Hydrogen : 12.32 years, CO_2: 100 years, lactate: 60 minutes after exercise. However I couldn't find half-life values for bicarbonate (HCO3) though I got one for NaHCO3 (100 hours in plasma). Does any one have any ideas the rate of decay of HCO3, and if the above half-life values are relevant in a human cell?
Many thanks for your help,
