Before we can proceed with the titration of the acid, we must first determine very accurately the concentration of the sodium hydroxide solution. Additionally, the resulting solution tends If there are other components aside the hydroxides, you should look for the right indicator to titrate only the potassium hydroxide in the new mix. The new factor should be 1.403 times the old one (the one used for sodium hydroxide). Physical Properties: bp 1390 °C, mp 318 °C bp 1320 °C, mp 360 °C Highly soluble in water Highly soluble in water (109 g/100 mL) Odor When, aqueous NaOH solution is added, ethanoic acid concentration is reduced and pH value is increased. Luckily, today you can get both sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide in pure versions with consistent strength from chemical vendors. Unlike your ancestors' unpredictable lye soap, you can predict that soaps made today, whether liquid or bar, made with sodium or potassium hydroxide, are designed to be gentle on your skin. Substance: Sodium hydroxide, Potassium hydroxide (Sodium hydrate, Potassium hydrate, soda, lye, caustic potash) CAS 1310-73-2, CAS 1310-58-3 . The base is very hygroscopic, water absorbing. Formula: NaOH, KOH . (boric acid/potassium chloride/sodium hydroxide), traceable to SRM of NIST and PTB for 500 ml buffer solution, pH 11.00 ± 0.05 (20°C) Titrisol ® Supelco pricing Best regards, Daniel Montañés - Cañuelas, Buenos Aires, Argentina Titration of adding sodium hydroxide to ethanoic acid Aqueous ethanoic acid shows a pH value below than 7 (usually 3-7, but may change due to concentration). Although sodium hydroxide is a solid, preparation of solutions of accurately known concentration is difficult. Hope this clarifies something!
