Re: Confusion over 3% iodine in the UK


Hi just thinking, I thought that at first but then I saw this on J crow website which also refers to 1/20th ml:

Calculating Number of MG's of Iodine and Iodide per Drop of Lugol's Solution: Lugol's 5%: Each VERTICAL "metric" drop (= 1/20ml) is approximately 2.5 mg of Iodine and 5mg of potassium iodide. The Iodide portion of Potassium Iodide is about 75% so that is 3.75mg. Therefore the total Iodine plus Iodide is 2.5 + 3.75 = 6.25mg and 2 drops is about 12.50 mg's of iodine/iodide (5.0 mg iodine, 7.50 mg iodide).

Calculating Number of MG's of Iodine and Iodide per Drop of Lugol's Solution: LUGOL'S 2%: Each VERTICAL "metric" drop (= 1/20ml) is approximately1.0 mg of iodine and 2.0 mg of potassium iodide. The Iodide portion of Potassium Iodide is about 75% so that is 1.5 mg. Therefore the total Iodine plus Iodide is 1.0 + 1.5 = 2.5 mg and 2 drops is about 5.0 mg's of iodine/iodide (2.0 mg iodine, 3.0 mg iodide).

So either way it doesn't stack up!
