MES is used as a buffering agent in biology and biochemistry. It is utilized for resolving very small proteins on bis-tris gels. It is mainly used as a biological buffer in plant cell cultures. Buffer solutions are used as a means of keeping pH at a nearly constant value in a wide variety of chemical applications.
