I am planning a titration to determine the concentration of commercial 20 volume hydrogen peroxide. I will be titrating it against potassium permanganate. I know that acid, H2SO4, must come into it too, but am unsure as to whether this is added to the H2O2 solution, or the potassium permanganate solution.
I have done very little practical work in chemistry, as I attend an evening class, and I need to know:
is diluting the 20 volume hydrogen peroxide on a 1: 9 basis with distilled water an adequate dilution?
what volume of diluted solution should I make up?
what volume of diluted solution for each titration?
what conc of potassium permanganate to be used?
what conc of H2SO4, and what to add it to?
Any help gratefully received.
Thanks in adv.
