The procedure is based on the
reaction of ascorbic acid with the
zinc chloride salt of diazotized I-
aminoanthraquinone (Fast Red AL
salt) in an acidic medium,
followed by development of a
blue colour (
630 nm) in
alkaline solution.

The mechanism of the reaction
between the diazonium salt of 1-
aminoanthraquinone (I) and
ascorbic acid (II) to form the
lactone (III), which in an alkaline
medium, yields the xalohydrazide
derivative (IV) , is shown in
Scheme 1
2 Mei 2013 33
General Procedure
In a 10 mL calibrated flask were placed 1 mL of
the standard or the sample preparation, 1 mL of
the reagent solution and 2 mL of 10% sodium
hydroxide solution. The volume was made up to
the mark with distilled water, the solution mixed
and the absorbance at 630 nm measured
against a reagent blank prepared similarly
(absorbance of the reagent blank = 0.002).
2 Mei 2013 34
Ampoules, syrups & drops procedure
An accurately measured volume, equivalent to
about 20 mg of ascorbic acid, was transferred
into a 100 mL calibrated flask, 0.5 g of citric acid
was added and the volume was made up to the
mark with distilled water
2 Mei 2013 35
Procedure for tablets
An accurately weighed amount of powder
obtained from 20 tablets, equivalent to about
20 mg of ascorbic acid, was transferred into a
100 mL calibrated flask, followed by 50 mL of
extracting solution. The flask was shaken for
15 min and the contents were made up to the
mark with distilled water
The solution was filtered, the first portion of the
filtrate being rejected
2 Mei 2013 36
Procedure for multi-vitamin capsules
Ten capsules were completely disintegrated by
adding 50 mL of the extracting solution to a
200 mL beaker containing the capsules and
gently heating the mixture.
The suspension was transferred quantitatively
into a 500 mL calibrated flask and rapidly cooled
to room temperature. The volume was made up
to the mark with distilled water
2 Mei 2013 37
Absorption Spectra
Fast Red AL salt (dioazotized 1-
aminoanthraquinone stabilized as the
zinc chloride salt) reacts with ascorbic
acid in an acidic medium after which a
blue colour develops in alkaline
solution with a maximum absorbance
at 630 nm (Fig. 1); the reagent and
ascorbic acid have no absorption in
this region. The blue colour formed in
the alkaline medium is dispelled on
2 Mei 2013 38
Stability of Colour
The colour developed immediately,
attained a maximum within 1 min and
remained stable for at least 2 h.

Stability of Ascorbic Acid
Fifty percent of the reagent-reducing
activity of a solution of ascorbic acid
(200 g.mL
) disappeared within 2 h
(Fig. 2). When ascorbic acid was
prepared in 5% trichloracetic acid,
0.5% oxalic acid or 0.5% citric acid, the
reducing activity was stable for 2 h but
it decreased steadily after that time
2 Mei 2013 39
Concentration of Reagent
The colour developed strongly as the
amount of Fast Red AL salt in the
reaction mixture was increased from
0.75 to 1.25 mL of a 0.25% solution
(Fig. 3).

Oxalic and citric acids have been
reported to be efficient stabilizers of
ascorbic acid solution,
but the
resulting final solutions were turbid
when oxalic acid was used; therefore,
citric acid, which produces no turbidity,
was used throughout this work

2 Mei 2013 40
Type and Concentration of
In acidic and neutral media, no
development of colour was observed,
whereas in an alkaline medium the
blue colour developed rapidly.
Different alkalis were tested (Table 1)
and all produced virtually identical
absorbance readings but with small
shifts in the maxima. Sodium
hydroxide was preferred as the

observed with this alkali was shifted to
the longest wavelength. In addition,
the use of an excess of sodium
hydroxide is required in order to
dissolve any precipitated zinc
hydroxide (resulting from the zinc
chloride present in the reagent)
2 Mei 2013 41
Effect of Diluting Solvents
Methanol, ethanol, water, propan-2-ol,
dimethyl sulphoxide and
dimethylformamide were tested as
diluting solvents (Table2). The results
revealed that water and ethanol were
the best solvents. However, water was
used throughout this work; this is an
additional advantage of the proposed
method. Carbon tetrachloride,
chloroform and 1,2-dichIoroethane
were not suitable as the colour
produced could not be extracted into
these solvents.

DCIP as dye
The blue dye DCIP is reduced to the colorless
form on addition of ascorbic acid but it gives a
pink color to the acidic solutions.
2 Mei 2013 47
Color extraction
Using the dye, ascorbic acid present in sample
has been determined. The excess dye can be
extracted with xylene or butanol.
Many substances which are capable of reducing
the dye resulting from the preparation and
processing of samples interfere.

Tetrachlorobenzoquinone as dye
Ascorbic acid is determined at 336 nm
(=535 cm
) via a decrease in absorbance
of 7.104 M tetrachlorobenzoquinone (chloranil)
in 80% acetonewater (v/v) medium.
With these methods, mixtures of ascorbic acid
with thiols like o-mercaptobenzoic acid,
mercaptosuccinic acid, 3-mercaptopropionic acid
can not be resolved.

Methylene Blue
Methylene Blue has been used to determine
ascorbic acid in food products.
The colorless form of the dye is extracted into
chloroform after its reduction with ascorbic
acid; back oxidation of the dihydro derivative
to Methylene Blue has been used for the assay
of ascorbic acid (
=653 nm). The method is
reported to be highly sensitive.

Ninhydrin & Resorcinol
The reaction of ascorbic acid with ninhydrin carried
out on a boiling water bath using 80% aqueous
solution as a medium in 0.01 M NH
OH is used for
its determination in pharmaceuticals (
=415 nm),
but without added advantages.

Methanolic solution of resorcinol gives a pale yellow
color (
=425 nm) with ascorbic acid in
hydrochloric acid medium, obeying Beers law for
80-400 g ml
2 Mei 2013 51
Diazotized dye
A purplish or blue colored species is produced by these salts with
ascorbic acid in alkaline medium. Diazotized-4-methoxy-2-nitroaniline
couples with ascorbic acid in oxalic acid medium in the presence of
ethanol or isopropanol, giving a purplish color in alkaline solutions.

Though Fe(II), Sn(II) and dehydroascorbic acid (DHAA) do not interfere,
the presence of reductones and reductic acid requires formaldehyde
condensation. Low contents of vitamin C in the presence of flavanoids
and pectic substances are also detected.

The reaction of ascorbic acid with 4-nitrobenzene diazonium
fluoroborate in acetic acid medium was used for its determination at

415 nm. But the mixture has to be kept for 25 min in the dark,
followed by the addition of sodium hydroxide.
2 Mei 2013 52
4-Chloro-7-nitrobenzofurazane forms a bluish green colored
species with ascorbic acid in presence of 0.2 M NaOH.

The absorbance is measured at 582 nm after diluting the
reaction contents with 50% (v/v) aqueous acetone solution.
Beers law is obeyed in the concentration range 5 20 gmL
The colored product is stable for 30 min only when kept away
from direct sunlight or artificial day light.

The method is reported free from the interference of all other
vitamins and minerals present in multivitamin preparations
and can be applied to the analysis of pharmaceuticals, fresh
fruit juices and vegetables.

2,3,5-triphenyltetrazolium chloride
Hashmi et al. proposed a method based on the
reaction of 2,3,5-triphenyltetrazolium chloride with

is allowed to stand in the dark for 30 min at 25C; it
obeys Beers law over the range 5-25 g mL
Sugars (>15 g mL

forming a similar color to that of the reagent.
Riboflavin, cyanocobalamin and folic acid interfere
due to their own color.

Phenylhydrazinium chloride
Phenylhydrazinium chloride produces a yellow color
=395 nm) when treated with ascorbic acid in 0.1 M
HCl medium.
The reaction contents are kept for 1 h in an incubator or
water bath at 502C, thus making the method time-
consuming. Beers law is obeyed in the range 25100 g
of ascorbic acid.
No interference is observed from other vitamins,
minerals, glucose, sucrose, excipients and reducing
agents. However, the presence of excessive amounts of
riboflavin requires the addition of 0.5 g talc, which
imparts a yellow color to the solution.

All drug samples tested were fresh and purchased from
local pharmacy. An AA tablet or the content of a capsule
were weighed, ground in to a fine power and stirred for 2-
3 min with 50 mL of deionized water. 1 mL of 5% EDTA
was added and filtered through Whatman No. 41 filter
The insoluble mass was washed with three successive 5
mL portions of water and the filtrate plus washings were
diluted to volume in a 250 mL calibrated flask. A known
volume was further diluted depending on the AA content
and the colour of the sample. 1 mL aliquot was analyzed
as recommended above.
2 Mei 2013 60
An aliquot of sample solution containing 0.8-8.0 g AA was transferred
in to a series of 25 mL graduated tube. To this 0.4 mL of potassium
iodide-potassium iodate mixture solution and 1 mL of 0.02-mol l

hydrochloric acid solution were added, and the mixture was gently
shaken until the appearance of yellow colour, indicating the liberation
of iodine. Then 1 mL of 0.05% LMG solution was added to it followed
by addition of 2 mL of acetate buffer (pH-4.5).

The contents were heated (~ 40C) in a water bath for 5 min, cooled to
room temp and diluted to the mark with distilled water. The mixture
was kept for 10 min for completion of the reaction. The absorbance of
the formed dye was measured at 620 nm against the reagent blank.
The concentration of AA content was established from the calibration

It offers a sensitivity, selectivity,
simplicity and cost-effectiveness
of the method. The method
involves no extraction steps,
thereby the use of organic
solvents, which are generally
toxic in nature are avoided. The
stability of formed MG dye is an
added advantage of the method.
The sensitivity in terms of molar
absorptivity and precision in
terms of relative standard
deviation of the present method
indicated it to be very reliable for
the determination of AA in
various samples. This method is
good alternative to some
reported costly instrumental

titrating the citrate buffered solutions (pH 3.5)
with alcoholic solution (ethanol)
the alcoholic solution is claimed to be superior to
official solutions mainly because of its stability,
but it requires storage in a refrigerator
it can avoid or reduce interferences from colors,
iron, reductones and reductic acid
but the dye is useful only for solutions containing
not more than negligible amounts of interfering
substances and dehydroascorbic acid

N-bromosuccinimide was introduced as a reagent for the
determination of ascorbic acid using starch as an indicator
Reductones, reductic acid and iron salts do not interfere with this
titration, but it was found to give unsatisfactory results with the
samples of preserved juices and squashes containing metabisulfite
as a preservative
Quinoline yellow solution has been used for detecting the end point
in the titrations with N-bromophthalimide and N-bromosaccharin
These reagents were also used in the potentiometric titration of
Vitamin C. Cysteine and glutamic acid interfere
N-bromosaccharin was used for the microdetermination of ascorbic
acid in pure solutions and pharmaceutical preparations

A colorimetric method for the determination of vitamin
D, based upon the use of anisaldehyde - sulphuric acid
as a colour reagent, has been developed.
The method enables 0.1-0.5 mg of calciferol to be
determined with a mean percentage recovery of 100.2
1.44 percent, and it avoids the difficulties met with in
the antimony(II) chloride colour reaction.
Both methods, as applied to oily injections of vitamin D,
are compared, and a statistical analysis of the results
reveals that the proposed method is the more precise,
and has an accuracy equal to that of the antimony(II)
chloride method.

For the standard additions method three separatory funnels were used. To the
first was added a 5.0-mL aliquot of the EDTA-vitamin solution.
A mixture of a 5.0-mL aliquot of the EDTA-vitamin solution and 0.10 mL of
standard solution (measured with a micropipette) was placed in the second.
The third contained 100 mL of the standard solution alone. The tocopheryl
acetate in each solution was extracted with two 10-mL portions of petroleum
ether and the extracts were treated as just described for the samples.
The standard additions method was repeated with 10-mL aliquots.
