Acid-Base Titrations

- Introduction
- 1.)Experimental Measurements of pKa
- pKa of amino acids in an active-site of a protein are related to its function
- Protein structure and environment significantly perturb pKa values

- In medicinal chemistry, pKa and lipophilicity of a candidate drug predict how easily it will cross a cell membrane
- Higher charge harder to cross membrane not a good drug

- pKa of amino acids in an active-site of a protein are related to its function

- 1.)Experimental Measurements of pKa

Acid-Base Titrations

- Introduction
- 2.)Example:
- impact of the Asp on the pKa of His in the His-Asp catalytic dyad.
- Glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) catalyzes the oxidation of glucose 6-phosphate using NAD+ or NADP+
- His-240 is the general base that extracts a proton from the C1-OH of G6P

- impact of the Asp on the pKa of His in the His-Asp catalytic dyad.

- 2.)Example:

The pKa of His-240 in the G6PD apoenzyme is found to be 6.4, which corresponds to an unidentified pKa value of 6.3 that was previously derived from the dependence of kcat on pH. These results suggest that the pKa of His-240 is unperturbed by Asp.

Acid-Base Titrations

- Introduction
- 3.)Overview
- Titrations are Important tools in providing quantitative and qualitative data for a sample.
- To best understand titrations and the information they provide, it is necessary to understand what gives rise to the shape of a typical titration curve.
- To do this, acid-base equilibria are used to predict titration curve shapes.

Acid-Base Titrations

- Titration of Strong Base with Strong Acid
- 1.)Graph of How pH changes as Titrant is Added
- Assume strong acid and base completely dissociate
- Any amount of H+ added will consume a stoichiometric amount of OH-
- Reaction Assumed to go to completion
- Three regions of the titration curve
- Before the equivalence point, the pH is determined by excess OH- in the solution
- At the equivalence point, H+ is just sufficient to react with all OH- to make H2O
- After the equivalence point, pH is determined by excess H+ in the solution.

3.) Blurred End Points

- Two or More Distinct Equivalence Points May Not be Observed in Practice
- Depends on relative difference in Kas or Kbs
- Depends on Relative strength of Kas or Kbs

- Two or More Distinct Equivalence Points May Not be Observed in Practice

Only one Equivalence point is clearly evident

Second Ka is too strong and is not a weak acid relative to titrant

Acid-Base Titrations

- Titration in Diprotic Systems
4.) Using Derivatives to Find End Point

- Useful when End points overlap
- End Point of titration curve is where slope is greatest
- dpH/dV is large
- DpH change in pH between consecutive points
- DV average of pair of volumes
- Second derivative is similar difference using first derivative values

End point: 2nd derivative is zero

End point: 1st derivative is maximum

Dph = 4.400-4.245=0.155

Acid-Base Titrations

- Titration in Diprotic Systems
5.) Using Gran Plot to Find End Point

- Method of Plotting Titration Data to Give a Linear Relationship
- A graph of Vb10-pH versus Vb is called a Gran plot

where: Vb = volume of strong base added

Ve = volume of base needed to reach equivalence point

gA-, gHA = activity coefficients ≈ 1

Acid-Base Titrations

- Titration in Diprotic Systems
5.) Using Gran Plot to Find End Point

- Plot is a straight line
- If ratio of activity coefficients is constant
- Slope = -KagHA/ga-
- X-intercept = Ve (must be extrapolated)

- Measure End Point with data Before Reach End Point
- Only use linear region of Gran Plot
- Changing ionic strength changes activity coefficients
- added salt to maintain constant ionic strength

- Plot is a straight line

Slope Gives Ka

x-intercept gives Ve

Never Goes to Zero, approximation that every mole of OH- generates one mole of A- is not true as Vb approaches Ve

Acid-Base Titrations

- End Point Determination
1.) Indicators: compound added in an acid-base titration to allow end point detection

- Common indicators are weak acids or bases
- Different protonated species have different colors

Acid-Base Titrations

1.) Indicators: compound added in an acid-base titration to allow end point detection

- Color Change of Thymol Blue between pH 1 and 11

pK = 8.9

pK = 1.7

Acid-Base Titrations

- End Point Determination
2.) Choosing an Indicator

- Want Indicator that changes color in the vicinity of the equivalence point and corresponding pH
- The closer the two match, the more accurate determining the end point will be

Bromocresol purple color change brackets the equivalence point and is a good indicator choice

Bromocresol green will change color

Significantly past the equivalence point resulting in an error.

Acid-Base Titrations

- End Point Determination
2.) Choosing an Indicator

The difference between the end point (point of detected color change) and the true equivalence point is the indicator error

Amount of indicator added should be negligible

Indicators cover a range of pHs
