MOPS [3-(N-Morpholino)propanesulfonic Acid] is a morpholino propanesulfonic acid, and structural analog to MES (first introduced by Good et al.) Both series of buffers were developed to meet the following criteria: midrange pKa, maximum water solubility, minimum solubility in all other solvents, minimal salt effects, minimal change in pKa with temperature chemically and enzymatically stable, minimal absorption in visible or UV spectral range, and reasonably is easily synthesized. pKa=7.2 at 25°C, Effective buffering range: pH 6.5-8.0.
