Abstract: A flow injection system for cobalt determination in feces of bovines and equines receiving Co-EDTA as a tracer in animal nutrition studies is proposed, using 1.0 mol HCl L-1 as extracting medium, and detection by flow injection spectrophotometric procedure based on the catalytic effect of Co(II) on the oxidation of Tiron by hydrogen peroxide. Linearity was observed up to 8.0 Co µg l-1, and the detection limit was 0.2 µg Co L-1 (3s blank). The system requires 0.12 mg Tiron per determination and handles 65 samples hr-1. No baseline drift was observed during extended operation periods (8 h) and precise results (RSD <1%) were detected. Accuracy was confirmed by running several feces samples already analyzed by flame atomic absorption spectrometry. Results related to the HCl extraction procedure were in close agreement with those obtained using the nitric-perchloric digestion (y=0.978x+0.101, R2=0.9848), suggesting that HCl extraction and flow injection determination can be used routinely for rapid anal. of cobalt in feces.

"Rapid Determination Of HClO4-H2SO4 Degradation Nitrogen And Phosphorus In Farm Soils, Crops And Organic Manure Using Flow Injection Analysis"

Abstract: Sample (0.5 g) was decomposed with 25 mL of water, 3 mL of concentrated H2SO4 and 20.5 mL of HClO4 at 130°C for 10 min then heated to fuming at 200°C for 50 min. After cooling, water was added until the total weight was 50 g. To determine N, 30-200 µL of the supernatant was injected into the flow injection analyzer. and carried by a stream of 6% H2SO4 at 0.8 ml/min to mix with 2.5 M NaOH at 2 ml/min in a reaction tube at 30°C prior to reacting with a stream of Tecator NH3 indicator and detection at 590 nm. For P, 30-200 µL of the supernatant was carried by 6% H2SO4 at 2 ml/min to mix successively with 31 g/l of ammonium molybdate solution at 2.8 ml/min, water at 0.8 ml/min and 2% ascorbic acid at 0.8 ml/min with detection at 660 nm. For other samples vanadomolybdic acid was used instead of ammonium molybdate solution and ascorbic acid treatment, with detection at 420 nm. RSD for N and P were 2.1-5.4 and 1.8-8.6%, respectively. The results compared well with those obtained by other conventional methods.
