Why only Water & Sodium Tatrate Is Use For THe Calibration Of Karl Fischer Titrator?..

Answer / shoukatalli

The Water and Disodium Tartarate is used for
standardisation of karl Fishcer,because we are checking
capacity of 1 ml of KF reagent to neutralise water.
Hence water content in std is very imp importan for this
titration'

i)Water is 100%.
ii)disodium tartrate dihydrate : This compound contain
15.66% of hydrate (water).
that is clear?

Why only Water & Sodium Tatrate Is Use For THe Calibration Of Karl Fischer Titrator?..

Answer / nagaraju chittela

The karl Fishcer has to standardized to check the
concentration of it, i.e how many milli grams of water can
neutralize against ml of reagent(mg of water/ml of KF
reagent).
Pure water can be used and disodium tartrate dihydrate also
can be used.

Weighing of water at mg leveliss is difficult(By using
modern analytical balances it is possible).

But if we take disodium tartrate dihydrate, we can weigh
good quantity of weight, as water is part of molecule.

Answer / kissu

DST is primary standard and it is stable up to 150 degree
Centigrade. It release free water molecules easily when
reacts with KF reagent.DST is easily soluble in methanol.
This DST has 15.66% water molecules so we can easily
calculate and standardize the KF reagent. We use the factor
of DST the compound which has less than 1% of moisture.

Water i.e 100% water molecules. But we must use 100% pure
water there should absent dissolved salts and anymore. This
method is not 100% accurate like DST. So generally We use
the factor of water for the compound which has more than 1%
of moisture.1water molecule approximately equal to 5mg of KFR.

Answer / rajendra bojanala

i)Water is 100%.
ii)disodium tartrate dihydrate : This compound contain
15.66% of hydrate (water).
the content of water in the tartarate salt remains uniform
and constant at room temperature and avoids errors in the
standerdisation
solubility errors can also be avoided with both the
compounds used for standerdisation

Why only Water & Sodium Tatrate Is Use For THe Calibration Of Karl Fischer Titrator?..

Answer / murali reddy

DST is a primary standard and MC is 15.66% constant and it
is freely disolve methanol remove water molecule.

water mc is 100% so both DST &water are used.
