El-Wakil AM, Farag AB, El-Nahas MS. Iodometric microgram determination of chromium(III) and (VI) by use of chemical amplification reactions. Talanta. 1993;40(6):841-4.
A simple, rapid and sensitive method is described for the iodometric determination of microgram amounts of chromium(III), based on the oxidation of chromium(III) with periodate at pH 3.2, removal of the unreacted periodate by masking with molybdate and subsequent iodometric determination of the liberated iodate. Chromium(VI) can be determined by this method after prior reduction to chromium(III) with sodium sulphite. The method can also be used for the analysis of organochromium compounds.
