Description

This session covers the properties of molecules that act as weak acids and weak bases. The Henderson-Hasselbalch equation will be derived and discussed in terms of the pharmacokinetic properties of anaesthetic drugs.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Identify anaesthetic drugs that are weak acids and weak bases
