Acetic Acid Otic Solution
Acetic Acid Otic Solution is a solution of Glacial Acetic Acid in a suitable nonaqueous solvent. It contains NLT 85.0% and NMT 130.0% of the labeled amount of C2H4O2.
Sample solution: Dilute 5 mL of Acetic Acid Otic Solution with 10 mL of water.
Analysis: Adjust the Sample solution with 1 N sodium hydroxide to a pH of 7. Add ferric chloride TS.
Acceptance criteria: A deep red color is produced, and it is destroyed by the addition of hydrochloric acid.
Analysis: Warm it with sulfuric acid and alcohol.
Acceptance criteria: Ethyl acetate, recognizable by its characteristic odor, is evolved.
Sample: A quantity of Acetic Acid Otic Solution containing 100 mg of glacial acetic acid
Analysis: Transfer the Sample to a 250-mL conical flask, and add 5 mL of saturated sodium chloride solution, 40 mL of water, and 3 drops of phenolphthalein TS. Titrate with 0.1 N sodium hydroxide VS to a faint pink endpoint. Each mL of 0.1 N sodium hydroxide is equivalent to 6.005 mg of acetic acid (C2H4O2).
