1.AbstractThe determination method of anion surfactant uses a cation surfactant, with an opposite charge, as the titrant. The end point is the point at which the charge becomes neutral due to the reaction between the anion and the cation. Benzethonium chloride is used as the cation standard solution.
This report introduces a method for standardization of benzethonium chloride standard solution. Sodium dodecyl sulfate is used for standard solution. First, determine the purity of sodium dodecyl sulfate. Add diluted sulfuric acid to sodium dodecyl sulfate, heat to reflux, and then titrate with sodium hydroxide standard solution.
Subsequently, prepare the standard solution of sodium dodecyl sulfate whose purity has been determined, and standardize the benzethonium chloride standard solution with titration against sodium dodecyl sulfate standard solution.

3. Measurement procedure
|3.1.||Measurement for the purity of sodium dodecyl sulfate
i) Take 5 g of sample into a 300 mL Erlenmeyer flask and accurately weigh it.
ii) Add 25 mL of 0.5 mol/L sulfuric acid with a volumetric pipette.
iii) Attach a reflux condenser to the flask and heat it with using hot plate or sand bath.
Occasionally, swirl the flask gently while being careful not to foam.
Reflux for an additional 2 hours after the solution becomes clear and does not foam.
vi) Cool the flask to room temperature. Wash the inner wall of the reflux condenser with 30 mL of ethanol (99.5 %), and next
with an appropriate amount of water. Detach the reflux condenser from the flask and add pure water to make it to 100 mL.
v) Immerse electrode (GR-525BZ) and start titration with 1 mol/L sodium hydroxide standard solution.
iv) Perform blank measurement without sample.
|3.2.||Calculation for the factor of sodium dodecyl sulfate standard solution
Calculate factor for prepared 0.004 mol/L sodium dodecyl sulfate solution with the following formula:
F ＝ (S × (P / 100)) / (M × 0.004) ＝ (2.5 × S × P) / M
S: Weighing amount of sodium dodecyl sulfate (g)
P: Purity of sodium dodecyl sulfate (%)
M: Molecular weight of sodium dodecyl sulfate (288.38)
|3.3.||Standardization of benzethonium chloride standard solution
i) Take 10 mL of sodium dodecyl sulfate standard solution into a 100 mL beaker with a volumetric pipette.
ii) Add 50 mL of DI water.
iii) Immerse electrode (SU-091, RE-201Z) and start titration with 0.004 mol/L benzethonium chloride standard solution.

Standardization of benzethonium chloride standard solution
The glass reference combination electrode was used for the purity determination of sodium dodecyl sulfate, and the surfactant electrode was used for standardization of benzethonium chloride. Both measurements were able to obtain the clear inflection point on titration curve as endpoint, and it was possible to measure without problems.
