Determination of Oxirane Oxygen Content

# Determination of Oxirane Oxygen Content

The percent of the oxygen(oxirane) absorbed by an unsaturated raw material during epoxidation.Â Determination of Oxirane Oxygen Content andÂ Preparation of 0.1N HBr Solution and standrazition.

>Determination Of Inhibitor Content?

Â APPARATUS:

Â a). 100 ml conical flask.

b). 10 ml and 5 ml pipette.

c). 50 ml burette.

Â REAGENTS:

a). Glacial Acetic Acid.

b). Benzene.

c). Crystal violet Indicator.

d). 0.1 N HBr. Solution.

e). Potassium Hydrogen Phthalate (Lab Grade)

### Preparation of Crystal Violet Indicator:

Take 0.1 gm of Crystal Violet powder and dissolve it in 100 ml of Glacial Acetic Acid.

### Preparation of Potassium Hydrogen Phthalate solution Solution:

Take 0.4 gm ofÂ  Potassium Hydrogen Phthalate and dissolve it in 10 ml of Glacial Acetic Acid aÂ shake well with a slight warmth to get a clear solution.

#### Preparation of 0.1N HBrÂ  Solution:

Take 16.0 gm ofÂ  HBr (48%) Solution and dissolve it in 1000 ml of Glacial Acetic Acid andÂ standardized with Potassium Hydrogen Phthalate solution.

STANDARDIZATION OF 0.1 N HBr Solution :

Take 10 ml of Potassium Hydrogen Phthalate solution in 100 ml of the conical flask. Then add 5-6Â drops of Crystal Violet indicator. Now titrate this solution with 0.1 N HBr Solution.

Calculation of 0.1N HBr:

Normality of 0.1N HBr SolutionÂ  = Weight of Phthalate

Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â 0.2024 X V1

V1 = Volume of HBr Solution used.

### PROCEDURE TO DETERMINE OXIRANE OXYGEN CONTENT

a.) Weigh about 0.3 â€“ 0.5 gm of sample in 100 ml of a flask.

b.) Now add 10 ml and 5 ml of Acetic Acid, and shake well.

c.) Now add 5-6 drops of Crystal Violet Indicator and titrate with 0.1 N HBr Solution, till the Dark Blue colorÂ changesÂ from Dark Green to Green.

Calculation ofÂ Oxirane Oxygen Content

Oxirane Oxygen Content (%)Â  = Â Â V x N x 1.6

Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  W

V = Volume of HBr Solution used.

N = Normality of HBr Solution.

W = Weight of sample taken.
