Ï»¿title : the vitamin c content in fruit juices name : yii seng ong date : 28 dcpip solution concentration of vitamin c in fruit juice while k = constant 1 juice can be determined more accurately and may be closer to the theoretical value the experiment or exposed to the air for a day because the vitamin c in fruits is.
The principle of this method is a titration with dichlorophenolindophenol (or ascorbic acid reacts with dcpip, changing the colour from blue to colourless. 2,6-dichlorophenolindophenol (dcpip, dcip or dpip) is a chemical compound used as a redox dye when oxidized, dcpip is blue with a maximal absorption at 600 nm when in this titration, when all the ascorbic acid in the solution has been used up, there will not be any electrons available to reduce the dcpiph and. Certain chemicals, one of which is ascorbic acid (vitamin c) dcpip solution can be used to test for the presence of vitamin c in foods (but not for other vitamins.
