Visocolor Nitrite

Visocolor Nitrite

Colorimetric determination of nitrite

In acidic solution sulphanilic acid or sulphanilamide are diazotised with nitrite. The diazonium salt is then coupled with an aromatic amine, forming an intensely coloured azo dye. Organic colloids, chlorine, humic acids and coloured heavy metal ions interfere.(Reaction principle analogous to APHA 4500-NO2-B, EPA 35.1, DIN EN 26777-D10)
