What are some examples of inorganic buffers?
The simplest is probably ammonia-and-ammonium solution, a very common buffer. Since ammonia is a weak base and ammonium is a weak acid, the two being conjugates and both inorganic, it can be used to form an inorganic buffer. Other examples are harder to find, as almost all inorganic acids are strong like hydrochloric or hydrofluoric acids. Because of some basic chemistry (which takes a textbook to explain) these cannot form buffers.
