Determination of Water Content in Petroleum using Solubilized Solvents with Karl Fischer Titration – Abstract 134

Wednesday January 17: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm, Room 382B
Presenters: Bruce Herzig, Application Specialist for MilliporeSigma
George McLean, Application Specialist for Mettler Toledo

Water content in petroleum products can be difficult. Let us show you how saturated hydrocarbons in most cases can be titrated according to standard methods. When overcoming solubility problems of non-polar or weakly polar substances, the addition of a solubilizer to the solvent is necessary. Learn more about why long-chain and cyclic hydrocarbons, long-chain alcohols and chloroform are recommended. In addition, petroleum products are mixtures of long-chain or aromatic hydrocarbons and are hardly soluble in methanol. Learn more about which solubilizer to use for water determination by Karl Fischer and when a KF oven technique should be utilized.
