Preparation and Standardization of 0.1 M Hydrochloric acid (HCl)


Preparation and standardisation of 0.1 M Hydrochloric acid (HCl) using THAM (Tris (hydroxymethyl)-amino methane and Bromocresol Green indicator.

Hydrochloric acid Solution Preparation:

•  Take about 100 ml of water in a cleaned and dried 1000 ml volumetric flask.
•  Add about 8.5 ml of  Conc. Hydrochloric acid with continuous stirring.
•  Add more about 700 ml of water, mix and allow to cool to room temperature.
•  Make up the volume 1000 ml with water. Mix solution thoroughly.
•  Keep the solution for at least one hour and then carry out the standardization.

Hydrochloric acid Solution Standardization:

•  Accurately weigh about 0.5 g of THAM (Tris (hydroxymethyl)-amino methane (tromethamine), previously dried at 105° for 3 hours and cooled in a desiccator, transfer to a conical flasks.
•  Dissolve in 50 ml of distilled water.
•  Add 2 drops of Bromocresol Green indicator.
•  Titrate with 0.1M Hydrochloric acid to a pale yellow endpoint.
•  Each 121.14 mg of tromethamine is equivalent to 1 ml of 0.1M hydrochloric acid.
•  Calculate the molarity by following formula:

            THAM in mg
M = ---------------------
          121.14 x HCl in ml
