Sodium diethyldithiocarbaminate solution10 %:
Dissolve 5 g sodium diethyldithiocarbaminate trihydrate for analysis in 45 mL of water for analysis.

Waste water from the metal- and glass-processing industries are normally treated with milk of lime to precipitate metals. However, the resulting high concentrations of Ca2+ tend to interfere with the photometric determination of lead. The procedure described below avoids this type of interference.

Sample Preparation:

Add 10 drops of a 10 % solution of sodium diethyldithiocarbaminate solution to 10 mL of the sample solution, shake and aspirate into a 10 mL-PE syringe. Pass the syringe contents through a membrane filter, wash with 10 mL water for analysis and dispose of the filtrate and wash solution. Pass 5 mL ethanol through the same membrane filter. Collect the ethanolic filtrate in a 16-mm round cell, add 5 drops of nitric acid 1 mol/l and place in the thermoreactor at 100 °C for evaporation to dryness. Add 5 mL of water for analysis to the residue in the round cell and adjust the pH to the required value of 3 - 6 with sodium hydroxide solution. This can be checked using universal indicator strips. This solution can now be used directly for the determination of lead.

Analyze:

Determine with the above mentioned test kits.

Calculation:

Lead content in mg/L Pb = analysis value in mg/L Pb x 0.5
