How do you prepare 2 M sodium acetate, pH 4 used in RNA extraction ?
Do you dissolve 2 moles of Na Acetate and bring the pH to 4 with acetic
acid (as indicated in Maniatis to prepare 3M NaAcetate pH 5.3 for
exemple), or do you start with acetic acid, and adjust the pH using NaOH ?
Results are different with respect to Na+ and Acetate concentration.

Thanks in advance,
