Hydrogen peroxide is a strong oxidizing agent with a variety of uses. Applications include the treating of industrial effluents and domestic waste and serving as a disinfectant in aseptic packaging.
The Ferric Thiocyanate Method
Reference: D. F. Boltz and J. A. Howell, eds., Colorimetric Determination of Nonmetals, 2nd. ed., Vol. 8, p. 304 (1978).
The ferric thiocyanate method consists of ammonium thiocyanate and ferrous iron in acid solution. Hydrogen peroxide oxidizes ferrous iron to the ferric state, resulting in the formation of a red thiocyanate complex. Chlorine will not interfere with this method. Ferric iron will interfere. Results are expressed as ppm (mg/L) H2O2.
Range: 0-1000 & 1200-12,000 ppm
MDL: 200 ppm
Method: Ferric Thiocyanate
