ABSTRACT
The article focuses on hydrogen ion concentrations in saliva. It comments on misconceptions of ionization and dissociation giving the impression that electrical currents are responsible for these states. It mentions that in salt or acid solutions the chemically active molecules are limited to ionized molecules. It comments on the role that salivary proteins play in the formation of tartar.

    The dissolution of �-brasses in a chloride medium at a pulse anodic polarization proceeds at first (up to ~1 min) nearly uniformly, but when the charge of anodic pulse is carried out partly on the ionization of zinc and partly on the ionization of copper, it becomes selective. In this case...
