Sample preparation:
In a porcelain-ball mill ground about 1 kg glass gall finely (3 hr) and dry 100 g of this material at 120 °C to constant weight. In a 1000-ml glass beaker place 10 g of the dried sample and add 30 ml hydrochloric acid 25 % in small portions. The acid addition is so regulated as to avoid excessive foaming. After addition of each acid portion cover the beaker with a watch glass. After all the sample material has been brought into solution, reduce the solution to a volume of 10 ml by evaporation on the steam bath. Add 10 ml of nitric acid 65 % and re-evaporate. Dissolve the remaining syrupy residue in water for analysis, transfer to a 1000-ml volumetric flask and fill up to the mark with water for analysis. After thoroughly mixing pipet out 10 ml into a 100-ml volumetric flask, fill up to the mark with water for analysis and mix well.
Determine with the above mentioned test kits.
Iron oxide content in % Fe2O3 = analysis value in mg/l Fe x 0.143
