Standard Test Method for Antimony in Water
|Publication Date:||15 June 1992|
|ICS Code (Examination of water for chemical substances):||13.060.50|
This test method covers(footnote 2) the determination of dissolved and total recoverable antimony in water by atomic absorption spectroscopy.
This test method is applicable in the range from 1 to 15 µg/L of antimony. The range may be extended by less scale expansion or by dilution of the sample.
The precision and bias data were obtained on reagent water, tap water, salt water, and two untreated wastewaters. The information on precision and bias may not apply to other waters.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precautionary statements, see 5.1 and 8.12.
