Define Methods of Estimation of Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)?
Ascorbic acid is also known as vitamin C which is a water soluble vitamin. As you already know, vitamins are a group of small molecular compounds that are essential nutrients in many multi-cellular organisms, and humans in particular. The name "vitamin" is a contraction of "vital amine", and came about because many of the first vitamins to be discovered were members of this class of organic compounds. And although many of the subsequently discovered vitamins were not amines, the name was retained. In this practical we will learn about and practically carry out the methods of estimating vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid.
