Abstract: The use of chem. activated C electrodes (carbon black impregnated with Teflon, electrographic EK37 impregnated with Teflex, and glassy carbon) for indication in potentiometric neutralization titrns. of acidic compds. in anhyd. pyridine was described. Before every titrn., the bottom active surface of the electrode was roughened by a fine-grain abrasive paper and activated chem. by immersing into aq. 0.2M KMnO4 in 0.5M H2SO4. The compds. titrated were: phenylcinchoninic, benzoic, stearic, phenylacetic, and p-hydroxybenzoic acids, p-nitrophenol, 2,4,6-trinitrophenol, 3,5-dichlorophenol, thymol, and atropinium sulfate. Glassy C electrodes show the greatest change in potential, compared with both glass and Au electrodes. The chem. activated graphite electrode was better suited for titrns. with NaOMe than glass electrodes. The results of the titrns. with Bu3MeNOH are equally good with graphite electrodes as those with glass electrodes.
