Abstract:

The inert gas fusion method is shown to be well suited for the determination of the total O in Be metal. In order to release the oxygen from the very refractory beryllium oxide it is necessary to use a medium in which Be metal is soluble. Nickel was found to be the most suitable flux. Among the methods based on differential solubility of Be, the bromine-methanol procedure was found superior. A limitation of the method is caused by the unspecificity of the reagent. Author
