Iodine in acrylic burette

Discussion in 'Supporting Chemistry' started by A Walter, Oct 11, 2018.

  1. Hi Everyone!

    We've 'invested' in some acrylic burettes because I'm fed up of kids smashing them. But what can't go in them? I know tomorrows propanone is a big no-no but how about iodine solution in KI and water? Will they stain or will it rinse through?

    Cheers!

    Iodine stains can be removed with sodium thiosulfate, an absolute dream of a chemical to have to hand when using any halogens, this appears on CLEAPSS Hazcards.
