The CHEMetrics test kits for the determination of Phenols in aqueous solutions are based on patented Self-Filling Reagent Ampoule technology, and employ the 4-Aminoantipyrine method, delivering sensitivity and accuracy within two minutes or less. Premixed. Premeasured. Precise. Each kit contains 30 tests. Suitable for potable water testing.

The 4-Aminoantipyrine Method

CHEMetrics' phenols kits employ the well-established 4-aminoantipyrine (4-AAP) method. Phenolic compounds react with 4-AAP in alkaline solution in the presence of ferricyanide to produce a red reaction product. Phenol, meta-, and ortho-substituted phenols, and some para-substituted phenols, under proper pH conditions, are detected with this method. The method is applicable to the monitoring of phenolic compounds in waste water. Results are expressed as ppm (mg/l) phenol.

Phenol (hydroxybenzene) is the simplest of a group of similar organic chemicals, which includes cresols, xylenols, and catechols. Phenol itself is a common ingredient of disinfectants. In drinking water, low-level phenolic concentrations impart a foul taste and odor, especially upon chlorination. High phenol concentrations can indicate contamination from industrial effluents or waste discharge.
