Analytical Method: Analytical Quality Assurance, Standard for Cationic Surfactants

Cat.No. 102342  N-Cetyl-N,N,N-trimethylammonium bromide for analysis
Cat.No. 116754  Water for analysis
Preparation of a standard solution:
Dissolve 1.00 g of N-cetyl-N,N,N-trimethylammonium bromide for analysis with distilled water in a calibrated or conformity-checked 1000-ml volumetric flask and make up to the mark with distilled water. The stock solution prepared according to this procedure has a concentration of 1000 mg/l cationic surfactants.
Further investigational concentrations may be prepared from this stock solution by diluting accordingly.
When stored in a cool place (refrigerator), the stock solution remains stable for one month. The diluted investigational solutions must be used immediately.
