4 Principle
Dissolution of a test portion with nitric and sulfuric acids. Cold oxidation of the vanadium(IV) to vanadium(V) by a slight excess of potassium permanganate. Destruction of the excess of potassium permanganate by potassium nitrite, the excess of the latter being itself destroyed by urea. Reduction of the vanadium(V) to vanadium(IV) by iron(II) in a potentiometric titration.
5 Reagents
During the analysis, unless otherwise specified, use only reagents of recognized analytical grade and only grade 2 water as specified in ISO 3696.
5.1 Urea.
5.2 Nitric acid, ρ 1,38 to 1,42 g/ml.
5.3 Phosphoric acid.
5.4 Sulfuric acid, ρ approximately 1,84 g/ml, diluted 1 + 1.
Add cautiously, while stirring, 500 ml of sulfuric acid, ρ approximately 1,84 g/ml to 400 ml of water.Cool, dilute to 1 000 ml with water and mix.
5.5 Potassium nitrite, 10 mg/ml solution.
Dissolve 10 g of potassium nitrite in water, dilute to 1 000 ml and mix.
5.6 Potassium permanganate, 6,3 mg/ml.
Dissolve 6,3 g of potassium permanganate in water, made up with water to a volume of 1 000 ml and mix.
5.7 Potassium dichromate, standard solution, C 1 (1/6K 2 Cr 2 O 7 ) = 0,2 mol/l.
Weigh, to the nearest 0,000 5 g, exactly 9,806 4 g of potassium dichromate previously oven‑dried at 105 °C. Dissolve with water in a 1 000 ml volumetric flask. Dilute to the mark and mix.
5.8 Ammonium iron(II) sulphate, standard volumetric solution, C 2 (FeSO 4 (NH 4 ) 2 SO 4 ) ≈ 0,2 mol/l.
5.8.1 Preparation
In a 1 000 ml volumetric flask, dissolve 78,4 g of ammonium iron(II) sulphate (FeSO 4 (NH 4 ) 2 SO 4 .6H 2 O) with 500 ml of warm water. When the dissolution is complete, add 100 ml of the sulfuric acid (5.4), cool,dilute to the mark and mix.
