|Water quality — Determination of chromium — Atomic absorption spectrometric methods
Specifies two methods for the determination of total chromium in water by atomic absorption spectrometry. The two methods are covered in separate sections as follows. Section 2: Method A - Determination of total chromium by flame atomic absorption spectrometry. Section 3: Method B - Determination of total chromium by electrothermal atomization atomic absorption spectrometry. Method A is applicable to the analysis of water and waste water when the concentration range is between 0,5 mg/l and 20 mg/l of chromium. When the concentration is below 0,5 mg/l the determination can be carried out after carefully evaporating an acidified sample to small bulk, taking care to avoid the formation of a precipitate.
IMPORTANT - The use of evaporation will increase the effect of interfering substances and therefore for concentrations below 0,l mg/l method B is given.
