GFS Chemicals Organic Halogen Reagent (OHR) is also known as Sodium Biphenyl Reagent. The reactive nature of the sodium biphenyl complex in ethyl diglyme ensures complete extraction of any halide species present in most any organo-halide derivative. This includes pesticides, petrochemicals, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, mixed halides and fluro-organics. Extraction of the halide into an aqueous layer allows for easy determination via titration, color reagent or ISE. OHR does this effectively and rapidly for samples that can be dissolved in an inert solvent such as toluene or ether.
- Rapid — can be completed in 30 minutes or less.
- Safe — protects against hazards in chemical preparation and handling.
- Versatile — applicable to a wide range of organic materials.
