Picrate paper kits for determination of total cyanogens in cassava roots and all forms of cyanogens in cassava products

Bradbury, Meredith; Egan, Sylvia; Bradbury, James


The simple semiquantitative picrate method for the determination of total cyanogens in cassava flour has been modified by increasing the concentration of the picrate solution used to make up the picrate papers, such that a linear Beer's Law relation between absorbance and cyanogen content is obtained over the range 0-800mag HCN equivalents kg-1 cassava. The method has been adapted to determine the total cyanogen content of cassava roots and the results compared using the picrate method and the...[Show more]
