Homework Help: Glycine/hydrazine buffer

  1. Jan 18, 2009 #1
    I think this is going to be one of those unread questions that disappear into the abyss, so I'll shorten in hopes of a reply:
    What exactly does this mean: "If the reaction is carried out in a glycine/hydrazine buffer pH0.9, then pyruvate is trapped as the hydrazone and H+ the buffer."?
    I can't seem to find any straightforward information concerning this; or not at least I can follow....
    Any help appreciated.

    First of all - are you sure it is pH 0.9? Not pH 9.0?

    Check what hydrazone is.

    Sorry! Yeah it's pH 9.0. I'll have a look, but I am just about to post a more pressing question that I have.
