I've recently started performing an iodine value titration for fatty acids, specifically following AOCS's Wijs Method (Tg 1a-64). According to this method, it recommends adding varying oil sample amounts depending on expected iodine value. For example: adding 0.1954-0.2442g when IV=130 or adding 0.3175-0.3969 when IV=80. I've attached a picture of the table.
I've looked at other methods online and this doesn't seem to be consistent across methods: some say to add 10g or 100g no matter the sample.
I'm wondering if anyone can explain why this might be? I haven't been able to find explanations in my method or the others. I would have thought that in most cases, especially where you're unsure of the IV, a consistent sample weight would be the way to go.
