Differential Electrolytic Potentiometric Determination of Some Amino Acids in Dosage Forms
Abstract:The application of direct-current differential electrolytic potentiometry to the nonaqueous titration of amino acids was investigated. The basic character of amino acids in acetic acid was enhanced to permit their direct titration with perchloric acid. A pair of antimony electrodes was used as an indicating system. The shapes of the titration curves obtained were almost symmetrical with sharp peaks. The optimum current density for those titrations was found to be 1–2 μA/cm2. The procedure was applied successfully to the determination of certain amino acids in drug formulations, and the results were favorably compared statistically with those obtained by official methods.
