Abstract:

Procedures have been developed for the spectrophotometric analysis of the constituents of low-alloy steels and of aluminum and its alloys, using a single sample to give a composite solution in which most of the elements are determined. In general, the conventional spectrophotometric methods for the various elements have been employed, modified as necessary for the use of the single composite solution technique. The methods have been tested thoroughly, in the hands of several different operators, by applying them to a variety of standard samples the results of these tests are tabulated in the report. Detailed procedures, with explanatory notes, to serve as a practical laboratory manual are given for the spectrophotometric analysis of low-alloy steels for chromium, copper, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, phosphorus, silicon, and vanadium, and for the anlaysis of aluminum and its alloys for chromium, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, titanium, and vanadium. The molybdisilicic acid method for silicon in the aluminum samples did not give satisfactory results the conventional gravimetric method for this determination is recommended.
