Thanx... I guess I'll start with zwitter ions in neutral water solutions... and then, I'll add that aa. can be precipitated nad crystalized and explain the whole intramolecular neutralization, the difference: pKa1 << pKa2 (so, the predominant form is always ionized..) and also add something abouth &...

biochemistry for dummies (me, that is...)

I guess, since it says "answers all your questions", I can post even a stupid biochemistry 101 question. So, how can I define amino acids in termsof ionization? Of course I can talk about pH, pK etc., but they are never unionized, even as solids; if I start with "dipolar ions"; t...
