    • Abstract


      A new method for the approximate colorimetric estimation of boric acid depending on the yellow colouration yielded by boric acid with pentamethyl-quercetin in presence of citric acid in anhydrous acetone medium has been described. The method is empirical in character and gives results with a maximum error of about 15% with quantities of boric acid ranging from 0·4 to 1·8 mg.
