Register to read the introduction… Collect the sample to be tested in a 300 mL BOD bottle taking special care to avoid adding air to the liquid being collected. Fill bottle completely and add stopper.

2. Remove bottle stopper and add 1 mL of the manganous sulfate solution at the surface of the liquid.

3. Add 1 mL of the alkaline-potassium iodide-sodium azide solution at the surface of the liquid.

4. Replace the stopper, avoid trapping air bubbles and shake well by inverting the bottle several times. Repeat shaking after floc has settled halfway. Allow floc to settle a second time.

5. Add 1 mL of concentrated sulfuric acid by allowing the acid to run down the neck of the bottle above the surface of the liquid.

6. Restopper, rinse the top of the bottle to remove any acid and shake well until the precipitate has dissolved.

7. Titrate a volume of treated sample which corresponds to 200 mL of the original sample. This corrects for the loss of some sample during the addition of reagents. This volume calculated using the formula:

mL of sample to titrate = 200 x [300/(300-2)] = 201 mL

8. Pour 201 mL of sample from the BOD bottle into an Erlenmeyer

Section 10: QA/QC

A Quality Assurance/Quality Control program is required by the NPDES permit. Quality Assurance (QA) is a set of operating principles that must be followed during sample collection and analysis. Lab bench sheets must be maintained that document when the sample was collected, how it was preserved, and what results were obtained.

Quality Control (QC) includes any testing which is done to prove that the results are reliable. One of every ten samples analyzed should be a Quality Control check. This may include duplicate samples, spike samples, reagent blank analyses and known QC samples obtained from outside

    1.5 mL of distilled water was added to the 25-mL flask with diethyl ether inside of it. The bottom layer was pipetted out of the flask and transferred to an empty flask. 450 mg of anhydrous granular sodium sulfate were added to the wet ether to absorb any water in it. Then the ether was again transferred to a large test tube. Another 1.5 mL of diethyl ether were added to the flask with to the anhydrous granular sodium sulfate and was transferred to the large test tube with the either inside.…

    The column was then drained to allow the solvent level to reach the top of the silica gel. Afterwards, a solution of 0.3% Methanol in chloroform was carefully added to the top of the column to elute the column. Upon adding the fresh eluent, curcumin and other compounds were eluted at a different rate. The eluted compounds were collected using test tubes. The collection of eluted compounds was stopped when the first intense band had reached the bottom of the column.…

    They added about 20 mL of deionized water to the salt and stirred the solution until it dissolved. As it dissolved, the solution turned into a light blue color. Then to make sure that very little of the solution was left on the stirring rod, they rinsed it with more deionized water into the beaker. After thoroughly rinsing a 50-mL volumetric flask with deionized water, they transferred the solution into this flask and rinsed the 100-mL beaker with deionized water in order to ensure as much of the solution was transferred to the flask as possible. They filled the remainder of the flask with more deionized water, placed a rubber stopper into the top of the flask, and inverted it 20 times in order to mix the solution.…

    Similarly the crucible and cover were weighed and the difference between the clean crucible and the crucible with sample gave component Y’s mass, and from that the percent composition of the sample of Y. The remaining substance in the test tube was heated to evaporate any remaining solvents. The test tube and solid was measured. This solid ideally should be mainly component Z. However after the third wash with water for component Y, the remaining solid sample seemed to dissolve completely into the water.…

    The solution was stirred and cooled to 0°C using a water bath. The flask was removed from the ice bath then household beach (4%, 272.2ml, 1.2equiv) was added to the solution while stirring vigorously. Solution changed from colourless to dark red-brown to pale yellow. After a short time, sodium thiosulfate (10%, 10ml) was added. HCL (10%, 10ml) was added to acidify the reaction.…

    In a typical example, 1 g c-PEO-OH was dissolved in 30 mL anhydrous N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) solvent under dry argon atmosphere, to which 10 mL 2-bromoisobutyryl bromide was added at 0 °C dropwise for 30 min under vigorous stirring. The reaction mixture was then allowed to proceed at room temperature for 1 d. After that, the solution was concentrated by reduced pressure distillation to remove NMP solvent and excess 2-bromoisobutyryl bromide. The crude product was then washed with saturated aqueous solution of NaHCO3 and water sequentially for 3 times, dried over MgSO4, and precipitated in cold n-hexane to obtain a final brown viscous product. Preparation of c-PEO-N3 by substituting the Br on c-PEO-Br with azide functionalities Typically, c-PEO-Br (0.55g) and NaN3 (0.73g) were dissolved in 20 ml DMF in a flask. The mixture was reacted at room temperature for 24 h. After the reaction is complete, the mixture was filtered through a column of neutral alumina with dichloromethane as eluent.…

    Next, 25mL of 0.1 M Acetic acid is pipetted into a 100mL beaker. The 0.1 M Acetic acid is titrated with the 0.1 M NaOH in increments given in the data sheet; mixing well at each point and wait until the pH stabilizes. The pH is recorded at each increment and the electrode is rinsed with distilled water and placed back in the beaker with distilled water. Then, 25mL of 0.1 M Acetic acid is pipetted into a 250mL Erlenmeyer flask. Next, 2-3 drops of the proper indicator is added.…
