Please do you have a method to determine the iron content of a nickel strike vat by using chemical wet analysis. Many thanks M.

Wet Ni analysis. See; H.Christopherson and E.B. Sandell
Anal. Chim. Acta 10:1 (1954)
Also, O.R. Alexander, E.M. Godar and N.J. Linde, Ind. Eng. Chem. (Anal. Ed.) 18:206 (1946)
Also, A.M.Bond and G.G. Wallace, Anal. Chem. 55:718 (1983)
and, Anal. Chem. 56:2085 (1984)
These are the only wet procedures for Ni that I know of, but there is an older method using Dimethylglyoxime which produces a deep red color which can be measured on a spectrophotometer.
All the other methods are either electrochemical or ICP.
Wet analysis for Iron (Fe+2)
Hach Chemical Co. [Loveland, Colorado] has a packaged analysis for Fe.
All you do is add the packaged reagent to the solution containing iron (Fe). and read your results on a comparator or a colorimeter. It's very accurate. David Rich
