 General

 
    Synonyms:
    Use: qualitative detection of glucose
    Molecular formula: Benedict's solution is prepared by dissolving 173g sodium citrate and 100g anhydrous sodium carbonate in 800 ml water, with warming if necessary. This solution is diluted to 850 ml. 17.3g cupric sulfate pentahydrate is dissolved in 100 ml water and added to the carbonate-citrate solution; the mixture is then made up to 1 litre.
    CAS No: see entries for individual components - follow links above
