alkaline

alkaline (GB)

Term for the pH reaction of an aqueous solution containing a higher PH value as 7 (up to a maximum of 14). Alkalis (pH 7) have a higher proportion of positively charged particles (bases) compared to the proportion of negatively charged particles (acids). In chemistry are angry and alkaline states. But that will not over the taste but how the substance reacts. An acid taste sensation does not mean that something is chemically acidic (not basic). For example, a lemon tastes sour, but is chemically basic. On the pH scale of 1 to 14 alkaline (pH 7) is the counterpart of acid (pH <7). A pH of 7 is called neutral, then the ratio of dissolved in water acids and bases balanced. As part of a wine address becomes alkaline (rather rare) salty Taste, sometimes in white wines (eg. chablis ) and for which the Sherry variant Manzanilla is typical. By alkalinity is meant the alkaline (basic = low acidity) property of a soil, the content of alkaline substances (for example potassium. calcium. magnesium ) depends. An alkaline soil has a high pH of more than pH 7 and thus an acid deficit.
