ADD TO CART
The HI3850 is an iodometric chemical test kit that determines the concentration of ascorbic acid from the number of drops of reagent necessary to cause a specific color change in the sample. The HI3850 is supplied with all of the necessary reagents and equipment to perform the analysis. The test kit contains enough reagents for perform approximately 100 tests.
All required materials are included with the test kit, such as the reagent bottles, plastic pipettes, and plastic vessels.
The concentration of ascorbic acid in a sample is easily calculated from the number of drops of reagent HI3850C-0 used.
Significance of Use
Ascorbic acid and its sodium, potassium, and calcium salts are commonly used as antioxidant food additives.
Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) is added as a flavoring and preservative agent to juice-based beverages. This kit is especially designed for the determination of the content of Vitamin C in beverages. It is based on a drop-count titration and is practical also with intensively colored samples.
