Determination of sodium in potato chips

Titration of an unfiltered suspension of the sample with a standardized solution of aluminum containing a stoichiometric excess of potassium ions in the presence of ammonium hydrogen difluoride at ~ pH 3 to give an exothermic reaction, forming insoluble NaK2AlF6. The titrant is standardized against a solution prepared from anhydrous sodium sulfate or sodium carbonate. In addition to this application note, you can find more information on thermometric sodium determination in foods in our application video available on YouTube:
