Could you please change your font to something larger and easier to read, or
send in plain text. Your posts are interesting, but I have a lot of trouble
reading them. TIA.

"alkalinity" is probably the word you seek
While alkalinity is a technically "correct" term for the level of basic pH,
that term can also mean the buffering capability of water. Because of the
increased presence of papers and discussions of environmental chemistry
these days, alkalinity is most often used in the latter manner.
So...most folks I know in Chem & Biology do use the term "basicity;" that
is, if they wander away from simply using the term pH.
