Observe safety precautions for handling concentrated acids.
Wear eye protection and impervious gloves. Use caution and always add acid slowly to water. Corrosive to skin, metals, and clothing. Avoid contact with liquid and vapor. Use an exhaust hood.

0.10 M Acidified Ferric Nitrate
  1. Add cautiously 40 mL of colorless, reagent-grade concentrated nitric acid to 400 mL of distilled water contained in a 1-litre volumetric flask. If the acid is colored, bubble nitrogen or air through it, before diluting, until the brown color has entirely disappeared.
  2. Dissolve 40.0 g of reagent-grade ferric nitrate, in the diluted acid; dilute to 1 litre with distilled water and mix.
