explain more about zwitterionic form.

zwitterion is a neutral molecule which has both a positive and a negative electrical charge on it at different locations within the molecule. 

They are also called inner salts. For e.g. amino acids as they contain both an ammonium and a carboxylate group.

It can be viewed as arising via a kind of intramolecular acid-base reaction as the amine group deprotonates the carboxylic acid group.
