Cat.No. 114776  Spectroquant® Nitrite Test
Cat.No. 119899  Nitrite standard solution ready to use, 1000 mg/l Nitrite
Cat.No. 104874  Potassium hydrogenphthalate for analysis
Cat.No. 116754  Water for analysis
Membrane filter 0.45 μm pore diameter
Potassium hydrogenphthalate solution 2 %:
Dissolve 2 g potassium hydrogenphthalate in 100 ml of water for analysis.
Sample preparation:
In a closed Schliff-Erlenmeyer flask stir 5 g of the finely ground sample with 95 ml water for analysis and 5 ml potassium hydrogenphthalate solution 2 % for 30 minutes. Then separate the suspension in the centrifuge at 4000 turns per minute for 15 minutes. Filter the supernatant solution through a folded filter. If the resulting solution is not clear, additionally filter it through a membrane filter (mesh 0.45 μm).
Determine with the above mentioned test kits.
For the determination of the influence by the matrix it is necessary to run along a samples with standard addition.
Nitrite content in mg/kg NO2 = analysis value in mg/l NO2 x 20
