The Potentiometric Estimation of Chloride in Water Extracts of Soils1

Abstract

Abstract

The thermodynamic equation for the e.m.f. developed between Ag-AgCl electrodes in a cell with liquid junction is derived for a complex electrolyte system containing Cl. The equation is tested experimentally and a method devised to determine Cl in water extracts of soil. The range of the method, 5 × 10-5M to 10-2M Cl, is much more sensitive than either the electrometric, conductometric or the Volhard methods currently used in soil analysis.
