Standard Test Method for Molybdenum in Water

This test method covers the determination of dissolved and total recoverable molybdenum in most waters, wastewaters, and brines by atomic absorption spectroscopy. This test method is applicable in the range from 1 to 25 μg/L of molybdenum. The range may be extended by dilution of the sample. This test method has been used successfully with natural and reagent waters. It is the user′s responsibility to ensure the validity of this test method for waters of untested matrices.

Analysis Type (Application Method): Cold Vapor Atomic Absorption

Link to ASTM® D3372-17 Method

Compatible Filters:

Any 0.45 μm filter that will not contribute/remove metals. Groundwater sampling capsules or portable vacuum filter holder with hand vacuum pump. Filtering in field at time of collection using IC Millex® filter as an example. Forceps to handle filter membrane.
