Analytical method for sulfate and phosphate ion content in drinking water
Does anyone know the method to analyze sulfate and phosphate ion content in drinking water? My lab can only support a simple titration method. And I have one spectophotometer.

Mr Tanatip Chanprung,
Kits for spectrophotometry are widely available. Phosphate kit is based on reaction of phosphomolibdic reactant with phosphates, while sulfates are detected with a reactant based on Barium Chloride. You can build up your plot absorbance/amount at the absorbance maximum
(suggested in the kit leaflet). A typical kits producer is Merck, if available in your Country.
Let me know if and...good luck!
