Part Description

LP15472-1   Carbonate
In chemistry, a carbonate is a salt or ester of carbonic acid, characterized by the presence of the carbonate ion, CO2−3 or a carbonate functional group O=C(O-)2.

It works as a buffer in the blood as follows: when pH is too low, the concentration of hydrogen ions is too high, so one exhales CO2. This will cause the equation to shift left, essentially decreasing the concentration of H+ ions, causing a more basic pH.
When pH is too high, the concentration of hydrogen ions in the blood is too low, so the kidneys excrete bicarbonate (HCO3−). This causes the equation to shift right, essentially increasing the concentration of hydrogen ions, causing a more acidic pH.
