Product Description
Diantipyrylmethane is a colorimetric reagent for Ti detection, and is also used as a gravimetric and solvent extraction reagent for various kinds of metal ions. This reagent is readily soluble in mineral acids and organic solvents, and slightly soluble in benzene (1.7%) and carbon tetrachloride (0.28%). Diantipyrylmethane forms a yellow complex with Ti in 0.5-4.0 M HCl solution (λmax=385-390 nm, ε=15,000). The resulting Ti complex can be extracted by organic solvents in the presence of I-, SCN-, tartaric acid, or pyrocatechol. The detection range is 0.2-3.0 ppm. Diantipyrylmethane also makes a brown water-soluble complex with Fe in a weak acidic solution.
