Your online guide to
The objective of this site is to explain everything you need to know about pH measurement.
had the pleasure in my previous job to give courses in this area of
measurement techniques. It was fun and I met many nice people. One thing
I found out was that most people appreciate a simple and a less
scientific approach, regardless of level of education. My hope is that I
have succeeded to include this insight when I built this site.
