Title: FLOW-INJECTION DETERMINATION OF INORGANIC FORMS OF NITROGEN BY GAS-DIFFUSION AND CONDUCTIMETRY
Author: DEFARIA, LC

Abstract: A flow-injection-conductimetric method was applied to the determination of ammonia, nitrate and nitrite at concentrations down to 5, 20 and 20 ng ml-1, respectively. Ammonia was determined by merging the injected sample with an alkaline solution (NaOH-EDTA) and passing the mixture through a diffusion cell. The ammonia released was collected by a flowing stream of deionized water that passed through a conductance flow cell. Nitrate and nitrite concentrations were determined after reduction to ammonia in alkaline medium using a column filled with metallic zinc. The ammonia produced was then measured as described above. About 60 samples per hour can be processed with a relative standard deviation of about 1%. Satisfactory agreement was observed between results for ammonia in samples of natural water and nitrate in tap and mineral water determined by the proposed method and by standard spectrophotometric procedures. Speciation can be achieved by adding sulphanilic acid to remove nitrite from the sample and determining the ammonia without the use of the column.
