Abstract

A new procedure has been developed for the quantitative determination of steroid sulphates. The basic principle of the method is that a pyridine solution of the pyridinium salt of the steroid sulphate is shaken at room temperature with metallic copper powder or copper(I)-oxide, and the intensity of the coloured complex formed is measured at 310-350 nm. The method is suitable both for the total steroid sulphate determination of various extracts, and for the quantitative determination of steroid sulphates previously separated by some other method. Errors are in the range of 0.5-2%.
