To determine the percent content of Ammonium chloride in the given sample.


It is estimated by the alkalimetry method. An accurately weighed quantity of the sample is dissolved in water to liberate HCl which is directly titrated with 0.1M NaOH using phenolphthalein solution as an indicator. Neutralized formaldehyde solution is added to fix the ammonia as Hexamine, otherwise, it will interfere with titrant (Alkali).


Ammonium Chloride contains not less than 99.0 per cent and not more than 100.5 per cent of NH4Cl, calculated on a dried basis.


Weigh accurately about 0.1 g, dissolve in 20 ml of water and add a mixture of 5 ml of formaldehyde solution, previously neutralised to dilute phenolphthalein solution, and 20 ml of water.

After 2 minutes, titrate slowly with 0.1 M sodium hydroxide using a further 0.2 ml of dilute phenolphthalein solution as an indicator.
