I need to verify the concentration of NaoH and KOH mixture (100g).
The composition of the formulation is 40% of NaOH and 10% of KOH (both wt/wt).
Accroding to the theoretical calculation the total OH moles are:
n (NaOH) = ~1 mole
n (KOH) = 10/56= 0.1786 moles
n (Total) = 1.1786 moles = moles of OH = required moles of HCl.
I Performed a titration with 1N of HCL with pH meter .The volume of the HCl was 17.95ml.
That means that the 0.01795 moles of HCl were needs instead of 1.1786 moles.
i'm aware that carbonates affects the results but the deviation is huge.
I will be happy to have a help on this subject.
Thanks in advance.
