Buffered solutions are always neutral, with a pH of 7.
A buffer stabilizes the pH of a solution by preventing acids or bases from dissociating.
A buffer causes acidic solutions to become alkaline, and alkaline solutions to become acidic.
A buffer prevents the pH of a solution from changing when an acid or base is added.
