64 ml thiosulfate. The order of addition 2 4 of reagents was immaterial. Bray and Cuy conducted a large number of experiments using 2 0 % excess hypochlorous acid added to a mixture of 10 ml of the hydrazine solution, water, and 10 ml 6 Ν sulfuric acid. They determined the excess hypochlorous acid iodometrically. Their results were high (1-5 %) because of the loss of chlorine. Their results indicated that the reaction between N H and HOC1 was rapid and was reproducible if the chlorine error 2 4 was eliminated.

The method gave results reproducible within less than 0 . 11 % error compared with the iodate-thiosulfate method. 17. PER CENT PURITY OF HYDRAZINE SULFATE Purity No. 88 Av. 84 Av. 83 17.
