Abstract: The methods are based on the formation of an orange Cu(I) chelate of a Schiff base produced by the reaction of ethylenediamine(I) with pyridine-2-carboxaldehyde at pH 8.5 (borate buffer). The absorbance is measured after 10 min at 475 nm (e = 6210). In the batch method the response is rectilinear from 0.5 to 11.2 µg mL-1 of I, with a coefficient of variation of 0.61% (n = 11) at the 4.6 µg mL-1 level. With the flow injection system (55 samples h-1) the range is between 1.4 and 84.6 µg mL-1, with a coefficient of variation of 0.68% (n = 11) at the 36.2 µg mL-1 level. Tolerance levels for some ions in the presence and the absence of EDTA are listed. The methods were applied to the determination of I in aminophylline and pharmaceutical preparations.
