Carbon Dioxide and Carbonic Acid - Utah State University
CO 2 enters water through interface with the atmosphere and the biological processes of organic carbon digestion and photosynthesis.: Aqueous carbon dioxide, CO 2 (aq), reacts with water forming carbonic acid, H 2 CO 3 (aq). Carbonic acid may loose protons to form bicarbonate, HCO 3 - , and carbonate, CO 3 2-.In this case the proton is liberated to the water, decreasing pH.
