Cat.No. 100317  Hydrochloric acid 37 % for analysis
Cat.No. 104944  Potassium chlorate
Cat.No. 109137  Sodium hydroxide solution 1 mol/l
Cat.No. 109535  MColorpHastTM Universal Indicator strips pH 0 - 14
Cat.No. 116754  Water for analysis
Sample preparation:
In a glass beaker mix 25 ml of the sample solution with 10 ml hydrochloric acid 37 % and 3 g potassium chlorate and evaporate cautiously (fume cupboard!) to a wettish residue on the heating plate. Dissolve the residue in water for analysis and transfer to a 25-ml standard volumetric flask. Check the pH of the mixture by means of Universal Indicator strips. The optimum pH range is 3 - 8, if necessary, adjust using sodium hydroxide solution
1 mol/l. When adjusted fill up to the final volume with water for analysis, and mix well.
Determine with the above mentioned test kits
Nickel (total) content in mg/l Ni = analysis value in mg/l Ni
