Description Back to Top

Barium Hydroxide, Octahydrate, Reagent, ACS is used in analytical chemistry for the titration of weak acids. It is a clear aqueous solution that allows the use of indicators, such as phenolphthalein and thymolphthalein. As an ACS grade quality reagent, its chemical specifications are the de facto standards for chemicals used in many high-purity applications and typically designate the highest quality chemical available for laboratory use. Spectrum Chemical manufactured Reagent ACS grade products meet the toughest regulatory standards for quality and purity.
