Surface active agents - Determination of quaternary ammonium surface active agents in raw materials and formulated products - Potentiometric two-phase titration method

This European Standard specifies a method for the determination of the content of quaternary ammonium surface active agents in raw materials and formulated products, defined as being the amount of quaternary ammonium surface active agents expressed in millimoles per 100 g of product.
NOTE 1   The applicability in products different than those tested should be checked in each particular case.
NOTE 2   In comparison to usual laboratory two-phase titration with visual endpoint determination (see ISO 2871-1 and ISO 2871-2) potentiometric titration offers the advantage of automation, operator-dependent differences in recognising the equivalence point can be neglected, and a non-critical solvent replaces the toxicologically critical chloroform.

Grenzflächenaktive Stoffe - Bestimmung des Gehaltes an quartären Ammoniumtensiden in Rohstoffen und formulierten Produkten - Potentiometrische Zweiphasen-Titration

Diese Europäische Norm legt ein Verfahren zur Bestimmung des Gehaltes an quartären Ammoniumtensiden
in Rohstoffen und formulierten Produkten als Menge an quartären Ammoniumtensiden fest, angegeben in
Millimol je 100 g Produkt.
ANMERKUNG 1 Die Anwendbarkeit auf andere Produkte als die geprüften sollte in jedem einzelnen Fall geprüft
werden.
ANMERKUNG 2 Im Vergleich zur üblichen Zweiphasen-Titration mit visueller Endpunktbestimmung (siehe ISO 2871-1
und ISO 2871-2) bietet die potentiometrische Titration den Vorteil der Automatisierung, vom Analytiker abhängige
Abweichungen bei der Erkennung des Äquivalenzpunktes können vernachlässigt werden und ein nicht kritisches
Lösemittel ersetzt das toxikologisch kritische Chlorofom.

Agents de surface - Détermination des agents de surface ammonium quaternaire dans les matières premières et les produits formulés - Méthode de titrage potentiométrique dans deux phases

La présente Norme européenne spécifie une méthode de détermination de la teneur en agents de surface ammonium quaternaire dans les matières premières et les produits formulés, cette teneur se définissant comme la quantité d'agents de surface ammonium quaternaire exprimée en millimoles pour 100 g de produit.
NOTE 1   Il convient de vérifier, pour chaque cas particulier, l'application possible de cette méthode à des produits différents des produits soumis à l'essai.
NOTE 2   Comparé au titrage dans deux phases à détermination visuelle du point final utilisé couramment en laboratoire (voir l'ISO 2871-1 et l'ISO 2871-2), le titrage potentiométrique offre l'avantage que le procédé est automatisé, que les écarts imputables à l'opérateur dans la détection du point d'équivalence peuvent être négligés et qu'un solvant non critique remplace le chloroforme qui présente des risques toxicologiques.

1 Scope

This European Standard specifies a method for the determination of the content of quaternary ammonium surface

active agents in raw materials and formulated products, defined as being the amount of quaternary ammonium

surface active agents expressed in millimoles per 100 g of product.

NOTE 1 The applicability in products different than those tested should be checked in each particular case.

NOTE 2 In comparison to usual laboratory two-phase titration with visual endpoint determination (see ISO 2871-1 and

ISO 2871-2) potentiometric titration offers the advantage of automation, operator-dependent differences in recognising the

equivalence point can be neglected, and a non-critical solvent replaces the toxicologically critical chloroform.

2 Normative references

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references,

only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any

amendments) applies.
EN 14670, Surface active agents - Sodium dodecyl sulfate - Analytical method.

EN ISO 3696, Water for analytical laboratory use- Specification and test methods (ISO 3696:1987).

ISO 607, Surface active agents and detergents-Methods of sample division.
3 Principle

Quaternary ammonium surface active agents are combined with anionic surface active agent to form

water-insoluble ion pairs which are immediately extracted into a water immiscible organic solvent. This fundamental

reaction is the basis for the titration of equivalents of ionic surface active agents with an oppositely charged surface

active agent standard volumetric solution in the two-phase titration.

This process is supported by intensively stirring the two-phase mixture of aqueous solution and organic phase. The

potential, which is formed in the emulsion during the titration, is recorded with the help of a special solvent-resistant

surface active agent-sensitive electrode in combination with a silver/silver chloride reference electrode against the

amount of titrant added. The equivalence point of the added anionic surface active agent corresponds to that one

of the test solution at the inflection point of the titration curve (Annex B).
4 Reagents

WARNING — Your attention is drawn to the regulations covering the handling of hazardous substances.

Technical, organisational and personal protection measures should be observed.

During the analysis, unless otherwise specified, use only reagents of recognized analytical grade that have been

checked in advance as to not interfere with the analytical results.
4.1 Water, complying with grade 3 as defined in EN ISO 3696.

NOTE If the water is purified via ion-exchange resins, ensure that no cationic or anionic species from the resins

cause interference.

4.2 Sodium dodecyl sulfate, C H OSO Na, % (m/m)(C H OSO Na) ≥ 99 as determined following the

12 25 3 12 25 3
method EN 14670.

4.3 Anionic surface active, agent standard volumetric solution, c (C H OSO Na) = 0,005 mol/l:

a 12 25 3

Weigh 1,455 g of sodium dodecyl sulfate (4.2) with a known active content to the nearest 1 mg in a conical flask

and dissolve in about 500 ml water. Transfer quantitatively the solution into a 1000 ml volumetric flask, make up to

the mark with water and mix well.

The concentration of the anionic surface active agent standard volumetric solution, c , expressed in millimoles per

millilitre is calculated in accordance with the following equation (1):
m ×w
c = (1)
M ×100
where
m is the mass of sodium dodecyl sulfate (4.2) in grams;

w is the active matter content of sodium dodecyl sulfate (4.2) in grams per 100 g;

M is the molar mass of sodium dodecyl sulfate, in grams per mole (288,4 g/mol).
4.4 Potassium chloride, solution, c(KCl) = 3 mol/l
4.5 Hydrochloric acid, c(HCl)=0,5 mol/l.
4.6 Emulsifier, (TEGO Add

NOTE The emulsifier has the task of supporting the formation of a stable emulsion and at the same time of preventing the

deposition of the ion associate formed during the titration on the electrode surface.

4.7 Ethanol, denatured 96 % (V/V)
4.8 Methyl iso-butyl ketone (MIBK) (CAS number: 108.10.1), 4-methyl-2-pentanone
4.9 MIBK/ethanol-mixture

Measure 500 ml MIBK (4.8) and 500 ml ethanol (4.7) using a measuring cylinder, transfer into a 1000 ml flask and

mix well.
5 Apparatus
Normal laboratory apparatus and the following:

5.1 Automatic potentiometric titration apparatus, with drift-controlled data acquisition and dynamic titrimetric

dosing equipped with a piston burette delivery system of 20 ml capacity.
5.2 Propeller stirring system

In a potentiometric two-phase titration a thorough blending is required. Hence, a stirring propeller is compulsory.

The stirrer should be constructed so that an optimal emulsification of the vessel contents is achieved with a

simultaneous low degree of air entrapment. Propeller stirrers shaped like ship screws have been proven effective,

while magnetic stirrers are not suitable. It is advisable to pay special attention to the geometric arrangement of the

immersing parts (electrodes, burette tip, and stirrer). If arranged optimally, no foam is produced, not even with

heavy stirring.
