Transference numbers of aqueous citrate acid and the limiting molar conductance of the dihydrogen citrate ion at 25°C

  • 72 Accesses

Abstract

Anion constituent transference numbers for 0.011–0.055M aqueous citric acid solutions have been measured by the direct moving boundary method. The limiting transference numbers yield a value of 29.2 S-cm2-mol−1 for the limiting molar conductance of the dihydrogen citrate ion.
