Simple Method for Determination of Thiocyanate in Urine

Haque, Memdadul; Bradbury, James

Description

Background: It would be useful to develop a simple kit method for determination of thiocyanate in urine, which could be used to monitor cyanide overload in cassava-consuming populations. Methods: The method was based on the quantitative oxidation of thiocyanate in acid permanganate at room temperature in a closed vial with liberation of HCN, which reacted with a picrate paper. For semiquantitative analysis in the field, the colored picrate paper was matched with a color chart prepared using...[Show more]
