Abstract

The determination of chromium in steel by atomic-absorption spectrometry is briefly reviewed and the basis of the flow injection standard additions method explained, in which the novel configuration of using the sample as the carrier stream is employed. The effects of iron, fuel to oxidant ratio and dissolution procedure were investigated and a procedure is described that allows a conventional instrument-optimising strategy to be used, requires no releasing agents and uses pure chromium standard solutions. The selection of appropriate flow injection conditions is discussed in the light of the single well stirred mixing chamber model for dispersion. The application of the method is demonstrated by the analysis of six British Chemical Standard steels.
