Acid Value Determination
The acid number characterises the acidic components of the fats. For this purpose, the sample is dissolved in a solvent and titrated against phenolphthalein with potassium hydroxide solution. Only free fatty acids are recorded. The fatty acids bound in the glycerides are not determined.
The saponification value denotes the amount of potassium hydroxide required to neutralise free fatty acids and saponify bound fatty acids. The lower the average molar mass of the fat, the higher the saponification value. The sample is heated under reflux in a defined quantity of ethanolic potassium hydroxide solution and the non-used alkaline solution is titrated with hydrochloric acid.
A volumetric standard solution is a solution containing a precisely known concentration of a substance. The concentration of a volumetric standard solution is determined using a primary standard, which is accurately weighed and dissolved to make a specific volume. Volumetric standard solutions are made using reagent-grade (p.a.) substances as source materials.
The advantages of this over making them yourself are:
- Manufactured and tested using modern manufacturing and analytical methods
- Ready-to-use solutions
- High accuracy for precise analyses
- Application of NIST-certified reference substances for checking
- Connection to standard titrators is possible
The hydroxyl value is a measure of the hydroxy group content of organic materials such as paints, resins, polystyrenes, solvents and lipids. It represents the amount in milligrams of potassium hydroxide required to neutralise the quantity of acetic acid that combines on acetylation of one gram of the substance being tested.
