Ascorbic Acid: Methods of Analysis
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is an important vitamin for the maintenance of health and prevention of scurvy. Several analytical methods have been developed for the determination of ascorbic acid. These methods are based on UV and visible spectrometry, mass spectrometry, chromatography, electrochemical and titrimetric techniques. This review outlines the applications of these techniques to the assay of ascorbic acid in food materials, pharmaceutical preparations and biological fluids.
