pH shift in a Buffer Confusion
« on: May 17, 2019, 10:28:32 PM »
I resently made a Tris-EDTA buffer that is displaying an increase in pH as heat is applied. 5°C-->7.8, 25°C-->8.0, 37°C-->8.3. WWWHHHYYYY? To the best of my understanding, increased heat should increase ionization resulting inan increase in[H+] and a decrease in pH.

Help please, TIO
