Identification

 

  • (A) Reaction
  • (B)) By IR Absorption
  • (C) Reaction
  • (D) Reaction
  • (E) Test of water

 


  • A 10 % w/v solution is strongly acidic.
  • Reactions of citrates

 




  • 10 % w/v solution is strongly acidic
  • Must comply with the Citric acid anhydrous CRS.
  • A red color develops
  • White precipitate is produced
  • Complies with the test of water.
