  Alkali - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In chemistry, an alkali is a specific type of base, formed as a carbonate, hydroxide or other ionic salt of an alkali metal or alkali earth metal element.
The word alkali or the adjective alkaline are frequently used to refer to all bases, since most common bases are alkalis, although such use is really a synecdoche.
It is common to speak of "measuring the alkalinity of soil" when you actually mean measuring the pH (base property).

 Alkaline battery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Alkaline batteries are a type of power cell dependent upon the reaction between zinc and manganese dioxide (Zn/MnO
Compared with traditional carbon/zinc batteries, whilst both produce approximately 1.5 volts per cell, alkaline batteries have a higher energy density and longer shelf-life.
Compared with silver-oxide batteries, which alkalines commonly compete against in button cells, they have lower energy density and shorter lifetimes.

 Acid / Alkaline Food Chart
The acid ash (acidosis) results when there is a depletion of the alkali reserve or the diminution in the reserve supply of fixed bases in the blood and the tissues of the body.
In the healing of disease, when the patient usually has acidosis, the higher the ratio of alkaline elements in the diet, the faster will be the recovery.
Below are tables of common foods with an approximate potential acidity or alkalinity, as present in one ounce of food.

 19172. Alkaline vs acid zinc [California]
As a very broad and general rule of thumb, yes, alkaline zinc has improved to the point where it is usually the first choice for rack plated parts.
Alkaline non-cyanide zinc plating is generally better than acid zincs where a good throw into low current density areas is required.
Distribution from alkaline non-cyanide solutions is also far superior to that which could be expected from acid zincs.

 Chapter 13 - Alkaline Addition
Alkaline addition was employed as the principal component of a toxic materials handling plan that also included selective overburden placement, and the construction of chimney drains and alkaline recharge basins.
The earliest alkaline addition projects spread all of the alkaline material on the pit floor, prior to backfilling, reasoning that this portion of backfill was the most likely to be saturated, allowing the alkaline material to neutralize all of the acidity produced.
Alkaline material can be admixed with the high sulfur material to prevent AMD formation within the pod and it can be placed in conjunction with a cap to enhance hydraulic isolation and to help maintain an alkaline environment near the pod.

 Alkaline Phosphatase
Alkaline Phosphatases are a group of enzymes found primarily the liver (isoenzyme ALP-1) and bone (isoenzyme ALP-2).
Since the mucosal cells that line the bile system of the liver are the source of alkaline phosphatase, the free flow of bile through the liver and down into the biliary tract and gallbladder are responsible for maintaining the proper level of this enzyme in the blood.
Thus the serum alkaline phosphatase is a measure of the integrity of the hepatobiliary system and the flow of bile into the small intestine.

 Alkaline Earth Metal   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The alkaline earth metals (earth metal comes from alchemy, which was used to describe metals that resisted fire -- the oxides of the alkaline earth metals are not affected by fire) are a chemical series.
They are the elements in Group 2 of the periodic table: beryllium, magnesium, calcium, strontium, barium and radium (not always considered due to its very short half-life).
The alkaline earth metals are silvery colored, soft, low density metals, which react readily with halogens to form ionic salts, and with water, though not as rapidly as the alkali metals, to form strongly alkaline (basic) hydroxides.

 Alkaline Ionized Water by Dr. Hayashi
The degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution is measured in terms of a value known as pH, which is the negative logarithm of the concentration of hydrogen ions:
