Just a thought: the term dissociation is present, but not acid dissociation, though you discuss acid dissociation constants at length. Perhaps it is worth adding?

Discussion

  • If you refer to "SBO:0000180 - dissociation", it is the dissociation of a non-covalent complex. In the term "SBO:0000310 - acid dissociation characteristic", things are a bit more tricky. HCOOH + H2O => HCOO- H3O+
    implies covalent modifications (electron transfers).

    But we could indeed make the name of SBO:180 more precise.
