We are trying to measure the water content of dried (distillation from
BaO or Na metal) Benzyl alcohol
with Karl Fischer and we keep on getting high values of water content.

Is there an incompatibility of benzyl alcohol and the Karl Fischer
reagents (like for aldehydes and ketones)?

Thans in advance for your answers
