Fouchet's reagent used in Fouchet's test comes under oxidizing reagent or test. Barium chloride precipitates the sulphate radicals present in urine to form precipitate of barium sulphate. If bile pigments are present in urine, they adhere to these molecules. Ferric chloride present in Fouchets reagent then oxidises yellow bilirubin, in the presence of trichloroacetic acid to green biliverdin. Therefore the development of green colour due to the formation of biliverdin indicates the presence of bilirubin (bile) in urine.
