Abstract:

The toxicity of CuII and ZnII has been noted. Copper is a constituent of many alloys used in ship piping systems and corrosion in such systems would place the copper ion in bilge water discharge as a contaminant. The bilge water composition may vary greatly, but it may include oil, miscibly dispersed, which may interfere with any polarographic analysis. In addition to the detection of CuII and CdII in bilge water, the detection of NiII in bilge water was also attempted. And finally, the effect of the addition of known concentrations of Navy Distillate coupled with known additions of Type I Detergent in the polarographic detection of CdII in distilled water was studied.
