Published date


Specifies a flame atomic absorption spectrometric method for the determination of tin content of iron and steel. The sample is digested in acid, the tin extracted into trioctyl phosphine oxide in 4-methylpentan-2-one (MIBK) and then aspirated into a nitrous oxide/acetylene flame of an atomic absorption spectrometer. The absorption is measured at 235.5nm.

This Standard specifies a flame atomic absorption spectrometric method for the determination of tin in iron and steel. The method is applicable to all types of iron and steel containing tin in the concentration range 0.002% to 0.10%.
