The AN of the output mixture (assuming that boric acid acts as a monobasic acid during titration) should amount to 374mgKOH/g, whereas, after 20 minutes, which is the time that is necessary for homogenization of reacting substances, the AN equals 17.4mgKOH/g.
Although succinic acid and its complex exhibited weak absorption in the ultraviolet region but the dicarboxylic acid has beTher transfer efficiency relative to a monobasic acid. It compensated for the lack of fluorescence properties to some extent caused by the weak ligand absorption [27].
Nitrous acid itself is a weak monobasic acid known only in solution and in the form of nitrite salts.
