Do the QuanTab® test strips work in Acetonitrile?
Summary
QuanTab® test strips in acetonitrile
Answer
The Chloride QuanTab® Test Strips, 30-600 mg/L (Catalog Number/ Order Code 2744940) and Chloride QuanTab® Test Strips, 300-6000 mg/L (Catalog Number/ Order Code 2751340) should react in Acetonitrile and other organic solvents as long as the wick does not get clogged. If the wick gets clogged, the sample could be extracted with water or acid and a dilution factor applied. Hach has not specifically tested in Acetonitrile, but similar solvents have been tested with success.
