PHENOLICS (SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC, MANUAL 4-AAP WITH DISTILLATION)

EPA 420.1

Scope:

This method is applicable to the analysis of ground water, drinking, surface, and saline waters, and domestic and industrial wastes. Phenolic materials react with 4-aminoantipyrine in the presence of potassium ferricyanide at a pH of 10 to form a stable reddish-brown antipyrine dye. The amount of color produced is a function of the concentration of phenolic material.
