Fischer reagent appearance is pale yellow, transparent solution.
Used in laboratory chemical analyzes as necessary to quantify the water content by volumetric method. The existence of several modifications Fischer reagent allowed to significantly expand the range of their use. Today Fischer reagent helps determine the moisture content of oils, petroleum products, plastics and fertilizers. Modern versions allow a high reaction rate in the procedure of the titration equivalence point stability in the final stage of titration, high precision analysis results obtained, in the absence of a toxic part of pyridine and versatility.
Fischer reagent requires careful storage, especially in the laboratory, leaving the banks are not allowed to enter the open and foreign components.
