A new analytical method that can measure a substance’s acidity in solution within minutes could take some of the hassle out of drug discovery. In lab studies on several common drugs, the tool—which pairs a chemical separation method with an automated buffer-creation system—yielded pKa values close to those obtained from traditional methods but in a fraction of the time (Anal Chem. 2015, DOI: 10.1021/acs.analchem.5b00845).
