NaCl comercial, AgNO3; determinación de haluros; métodos alternativos.


In this work, the volumetric, conductometric and potentiometric methods for the determination of Cl- ions in commercial NaCl samples were compared with the method established in NC-ISO 2481. Hg(NO3)2 was replaced by AgNO3 as the titrant in the
normalized method. The percentage of halogens expressed as Cl-, NaCl, and I- were determined. The analysis performance parameters sensitivity, and repeatability were evaluated as precision and truthfulness criteria. One way Anova as carried out, where the Cochran C test was applied to verify the homogeneity of variance, with the p-Value = 0,82, which indicated the equality of the homogeneity of the same. The p-value show in ANOVA table is 0,99, and it was confirmed that there are no significant
statistical differences between the means of the calculated percentage of NaCl.
