Abstract: Sample (1 ml) and 0.35 mL NaBH4 (30 g/l) were placed inside a generation flask, N2 was introduced to remove the air and the reference measurement was made whilst N2 was passing through the flow cell. After 2 min, 2 mL 2 M HCl was injected. Both hydrogen telluride and hydrogen were generated and carried by N2. The hydrogen telluride was transported to a flow cell placed in a UV-visible molecular absorption spectrophotometer. The absorption spectra was measured from 190-300 nm. The conditions were optimized based on height and area of absorbance vs. time profile of hydrogen telluride generated. The calibration graph was linear from 5-100 g/ml Ti. Detection limits were 1.1 and 3.1 g/ml of Te(IV) and Te(VI), respectively. RSD were 3-7%. The method was applied to additives used in synthetic rubber.
