TRIS: TRIS Base, TRIS HCl:
TRIS is a zwitterion buffer used in Biotech applications. Zwitterion means that the compound can have a positive and negative charge at the same time, which makes for very stable pH solutions. Powdered TRIS is usually treated to have a high or low pH that can be manually adjusted by the user.
TRIS (aka TRIS BASE) has a high pH that must be adjusted using hydrochloric acid (HCl).
TRIS HCl has a low pH and must be adjusted using sodium hydroxide.
TRIS's raw materials are primarily impacted by fluctuation in the fertilizer market, as many of nitrogen based materials are fertilizer raw materials. Other markets for TRIS include electronics, specifically printers.
