A mixture of hexachlorocyclotriphosphazene (0.35 g, 1.0 mmol) in dry acetone (15.0 mL) was added dropwise into a solution of potassium thiocyanate (0.87 g, 9.0 mmol) in dry acetone (15.0 mL).
To 0.485 g of Potassium thiocyanate (5 mmol) in 10 ml acetone was added drop wise 0.633 ml of 2-chlorobenzoyl chloride solution (5 mmol) in 10 ml acetone and mixture was refluxed for three hours at 50-55 C.
The researchers obtained a considerable inhibitory effect on the bacteria when using 0.2 mM of hydrogen peroxide and from 1 mM to 4 mM of potassium thiocyanate. But that effect was obtained only on P.
The investigators found that the antimicrobial activity of the LPS system on target bacteria changed according to the concentrations of hydrogen peroxide and potassium thiocyanate. The growth of all tested bacteria was prevented for a six-hour period using LPS in the presence of 0.4 mM or 0.8 mM of hydrogen peroxide and 4 mM of potassium thiocyanate.
Further the kinetics and mechanism of oxidation of sodium thiosulphate [18] and Potassium thiocyanate [19] by potassium bis(tellurato)-cuprate(III) in alkaline media has also been reported by Panigrahi et al.
Radiation dosimetry was done using an aerated aqueous solution of 0.01 M potassium thiocyanate (KSCN).
Sodium thiocyanate or potassium thiocyanate was added, and the mix was blended again.
Starch, for example, reacts with iodine to produce a deep blue colour, chlorine with toluidine produces yellow and iron reacts with potassium thiocyanate (KSCN) to form a blood red colour.
No change in iodine concentration was detected by either the AutoAnalyzer or Fast B after the addition of potassium thiocyanate at concentrations of 0.172, 0.344, or 0.688 mmol/L or of d-glucose up to 56 mmol/L (10.14 g/L).
Potassium thiocyanate, 1-bromodecane, 1-bromododecane, and 1-bromotetradecane were purchased from Merck kGaa.
The effects of three interfering substances (potassium thiocyanate, L-ascorbic acid, and ferrous ammonium sulfate) on the assay were assessed in triplicate using the following series: (a) iodate solution plus interfering substance, without digestion; (b) iodate solution plus interfering substance, with digestion; and (c) urine plus interfering substance, with digestion.
