Cat.No. 109531  MColorpHastTM pH-indicator strips pH 0 - 6
Cat.No. 116754  Water for analysis
Sample preparation:

In a glass beaker place 25 ml of sample liquid with 5 ml hydrochloric acid 37 % and evaporate almost to dryness. Dissolve the residue in water for analysis and adjust the pH using sodium hydroxide 1 mol/l to pH 4. Test the pH with pH-indicator strips. Transfer the solution to a 25-ml volumetric flask, fill up to the mark with water for analysis and mix well.
Determine with the above mentioned test kits.
