ABSTRACT A new volumetric method has now been developed for the determination of iron(III) through reduction to iron(II) with excess of hydroxylamine. The reduction is completed at the temperature of the boiling water bath in 10 min, keeping the acidity at 0.2–0.5 N sulphuric acid. The mixture is cooled and treated with enough 1 1 sulphuric acid to bring up the acidity to 6 N. It is then titrated with a standard solution of sodium vanadate, using N-phenyl anthranilic acid as inside indicator. Diphenyl benzidine, barium diphenyl sulphonate, or 1,10-phenanthroline cannot be used as indicators in this titration, because of the interference of the unreacted hydroxylamine.The method has been found to be very precise, and convenient. It has also the advantage that it is subject to fewer interferences than the existing methods.

    ABSTRACT: Hydroxylamine can be determined indirectly using standard mercurous nitráte, by treating the test solution with an excess of standard ferric alum, and back titrating the excess.The same procedure cannot be recommended for the determination of hydrazine and hydroquinone. The results with hydrazine were irregular and generally low. With hydroquinone, the brown colour of the oxidation product masked the endpoint.An attempt was made to determine nitrate after reduction with ferrous ammonium sulphate, but the high acidity required is unfavourable for mercurous nitrate titration, and results are only accurate to about 1 per cent.RésuméL'hydroxylamine peut être dosée indirectement au moyen d'une solution standard de nitrate de mercure(I). On traite la solution à analyser par une solution d'alun ferrique titrée, en excès et on détermine cet excès. Les résultats obtenus avec l'hydrazine ne sont pas reproductibles et en général trop bas. Avec l'hydroquinone, la coloration brune de son produit d'oxydation gène le virage.Des essais ont été effectués pour doser les nitrates après réduction au moyen de sel de MOHR; mais la forte acidité de la solution n'est pas favorable à la titration par le nitrate de mercure(I). La précision des résultats n'est que de 1 % environ.ZusammenfassungHydroxylamin kann indirekt mit Hilfe einer Mercuronitrat-Standardlösung bestimmt werden, indem man die Probelösung mit einem Überschuss an titrierter Eisenalaunlösung versetzt und den Überschuss zurücktitriert.Für die Bestimmung von Hydrazin und Hydrochinon kann dieses Verfahren nicht empfohlen werden. Die mit Hydrazin erhaltenen Ergebnisse sind nicht reproduzierbar und im Allgemeinen zu niedrig. Beim Hydrochinon stört die braune Färbung des Oxydationsproduktes die Endpunktbestimmung.Versuche zur Bestimmung der Nitrate, nach Reduktion mit MOHR'schem Salz, wurden unternommen, aber der hohe Säuregrad der Lösung beeinflusst die Mercuronitrattitration ungünstig, sodass die Genauigkeit der Ergebnisse nur ungefähr 1 % beträgt.

    ABSTRACT: 1. We have found that ferric alum (when present in slight excess) reacts rapidly with arsenite in 0.5 N sulphuric acid at 98–100 C when catalysed by osmium tetroxide so that the reaction reaches quantitative completion in about five minutes. The titration of the resulting iron(II) solution enables an accurate determination of the amount of arsenite taken. 2. We have observed that iodine monochloride also acts as a catalyst for the reaction between iron(III) and As(III) in sulphuric acid medium at 98–100 C. This catalysed reaction can also be employed for the determination of arsenite.
