Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:

Principles of method if other than guideline:
Redox titrations are based on a reduction-oxidation reaction between an oxidizing agent and a reducing agent. A potentiometer or a redox indicator is usually used to determine the endpoint of the titration. In permanganometry a slight faint persisting pink color signals the endpoint of the titration because of the color of the excess oxidizing agent potassium permanganate
GLP compliance:
no

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: oxidising
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The endpoint value of the redox titration is found to be 103.5mg of KMnO4/100g of test substance. This indicates that 4-nitro-o-xylene is oxidising in nature.
Executive summary:

The endpoint value of the redox titration is found to be 103.5mg of KMnO4/100g of test substance. This indicates that 4-nitro-o-xylene is oxidising in nature.
