Preparation and Standardization of 0.05 M Bromine

Preparation and standardisation of 0.05 M Bromine solution using Sodium Thiosulphate and 3 ml of Starch solution as indicator that is used in chemical analysis of pharmaceutical substances.

Bromine Solution Preparation

•  Dissolve 3 g of potassium bromate and 15 g of potassium bromide in sufficient water to produce 1000 ml.
•  Standardize the solution in the following manner.

Bromine Solution Standardization

•  Pipette 25.0 ml of the solution into a 500 ml iodine flask and dilute with 120 ml of water.
•  Add 5 ml of hydrochloric acid, insert the stopper in the flask and shake it gently.
•  Add 5 ml of potassium iodide solution, again insert the stopper and allow it to stand for 5 minutes in the dark. 
•  Titrate the liberated iodine with 0.1 M sodium thiosulphate using 3 ml of starch solution, added towards the end of the titration, as indicator.
•  1 ml of 0.1 M sodium thiosulphate is equivalent to 0.01598 g of Br2.
•  Store in dark amber-colored, glass stoppered bottles.
