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