The quantitative oxidation of thiocyanate by ceric sulphate has been studied and the method utilised for the determination of small quantities of cerium by back titrating the excess (unreacted) KSCN against standard mercuric nitrate with diphenylcarbazone as the internal indicator. Accurate results are obtained under the specified experimental conditions and the procedure is more simple and direct than that adopted during earlier studies of the above redox reaction.
