Good’s buffers are twelve buffering agents selected and described by Norman Good and colleagues in 1966. Good selected the buffers based on a number of criteria which make them candidates for use in biochemistry and biological research. Many remain staples in modern biology laboratories. Selection criteria Good sought to identify buffering compounds which met several Full Article…
