Abstract:

The flame spectrophotometric method has been used advantageously for several years to analyse metal alloys. Typical of the applications are the determinations of principal alloying constituents in stainless steels and copper-nickel alloys. Elements determined in the respective alloy classes are chromium, nickel, and manganese and nickel, iron, and manganese. Studies of the oxy-hydrogen flame emission spectra of these alloys show that interference effects are not of sufficient magnitude to necessitate preliminary separations. Rapid and accurate alloy identification is possible with very small samples 100 mg, which makes the method suitable for essentially non-destructive analysis. Author
