Abstract:

The influence of an electrolyte powder on iodine-treated water was investigated. When 77 gm of the electrolyte powder were placed in iodine- treated water, 12.69 mgliter, essentially all of the free iodine was removed in 60 minutes. The effect of electrolyte powder on the germicidal action of iodine was also investigated. The results were ambiguous and further research is indicated. The powder was a mixture of sucrose, citric acid, lime flavoring, sodium chloride, calcium chloride, and potassium monophosphate.
