Standard Test Method for Antimony in Water
|Publication Date:||1 September 2012|
|ICS Code (Examination of water for chemical substances):||13.060.50|
This test method covers the determination of dissolved and total recoverable antimony in water by atomic absorption spectroscopy.2
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.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are mathematical conversions and may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.
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.
