                                     BORIC ACID                                         1A
Rapid, quantitative determination of boric acid is possible with the SANDA Thermo Titrator.
The acid was titrated with sodium hydroxide, yielding very good stoichiometric results.

Experiment
A 0.1N solution of boric acid was prepared by dissolving 1 gm of the solid (obtained from
Fisher Scientific) in up to 500 mL distilled water. The titrant, 0.5N NaOH, was prepared by
diluting 25 mL of a 5N (Baker Dilut-It) solution to 250 mL volumetrically. 25 gm of mannitol
(Atlas) were dissolved in up to 500 mL of distilled water to prepare a 0.5M solution.

Procedure
Varying amounts of the acid solution were titrated with NaOH. Another series of titrations
was done to investigate the effect on the heat of reaction of mannitol. To each sample, 5.0
mL of the prepared sugar solution was added before titration. The heat of reaction was
found to have increased only slightly and the results obtained were not as accurate as
those from the previous series of titrations (without the addition of mannitol).

The minimum detection limit of boric acid with the SANDA Thermo-Titrator has been found
to be 0.002% with a standard deviation of 0.01.

Minute quantities of boric acid may be titrated with the SANDA TRACE ANALYZER.

Borax, a sample of unknown source, was determined with the SANDA THERMO
TITRATOR using 1N sulfuric acid as the titrant. Excellent stoichiometric results were
obtained by this rapid titration method.

The titration with sulfuric acid resulted in sharper endpoints than that in the titration with HCl.
1N sulfuric acid is preferred.

REAGENT
1N H2SO4 Fisher Standard solution
0.1 Na2B4O7 9.532 g borax were dissolved in 250 mL distilled water

       Aliquots of 5, 10, 15 and 20 mL were titrated with 1N H2SO4.


INSTRUMENT PARAMETERS

               Sensitivity:                  7
               Cut-off Adj:                  7.7
               Buret Injection Speed:        0.0667 mL/second.

RESULTS

               5 mL Borax Solution           =      1.28 mL 1N H2SO4
               10 mL Borax Solution          =      2.41 mL 1N H2SO4
               15 mL Borax Solution          =      3.56 mL 1N H2SO4
               20 mL Borax Solution          =      4.68 mL 1N H2SO4

                      Y-intercept:                  0.145
                      Cor. Coefficient:             0.99 999
                      Molarity:                     0.114

COMMENTS
Thermometric titrations of borax and boric acid are simple and precise. Titration time is
about one minute per sample. In the "quantitative" mode of the SANDA QC Thermo
Titrator, the titrated volume at endpoint is directly read from the digital display of the buret.
The accuracy of results has been proven correct in many determinations, whether it be
acid/base, redox or precipitations.

Description: Sanshou Sanda, also known in ancient times called Xiang Bo, hand pump, attack and so on. Simply, is that the two unarmed fighting face to face. GB Wushu Sanda is a major form of expression, to kick, hit, throw, take the four techniques as the main means of attack. In addition, defense, footwork and other techniques. Sanda is one of modern sport, the two sides in accordance with the rules, the use of kicking, punching, wrestling and other offensive and defensive tactics were unarmed fight, fight. Ring is a traditional Chinese form of martial arts is Wushu Chinese Wushu Association in order to be able to adapt to modern sport from the order.
