Water Determination in di-Sodium Hydrogen Phosphate Dodecahydrate by Karl Fischer Titration

This inorganic compound is often combined with tri-sodium phosphate as a water softening treatment, and is found in some cleaning agents. Primarily it’s used in foods. Its presence adjusts pH balance, and it prevents coagulation during the preparation of condensed milk. It also helps emulsify foods such as puddings and jellies, and quicken cooking time.

Di-sodium hydrogen phosphate dodecahydrate dissolves slowly in the methanolic Karl Fischer (KF) working medium. We recommend the addition of formamide (1:1, v/v) to markedly improve solubility. Both one-component and two-component volumetric titration is recommended.

Hydranal-Water Standard 10.0, Hydranal-Water Standard 1.0, and Hydranal-Standard Sodium Tartrate Dihydrate are suitable for determination of the titer or control of the volumetric determination.
