CC34724 -1L; A co-solvent for Volumetric Karl Fischer titrators. Add this co-solvent to either one-component solvents (Methanol Dry or Methanol Rapid) or two-component solvents (Hydranol Solvent) to improve solubility. Formamide improves the solubility of polar substances in methanol and is therefore prefered for the determination of water in carbohydrates, proteins, and inorganic salts. Formamide also accelerates the extraction of moisture from solids and is used in the titration of starch and other foodstuffs and naturally occurring substances, as well as in titrations as elevated temperatures. Formamide should not be used at concentrations >50% by volume.
