Abstract: A flow injection method based on the catalytic action of iodide on the color-fading reaction of the FeSCN2+ complex was proposed and applied to the determination of iodine in milk. At pH 5.0, temperature 32°C and measurements at 460 nm, the decrease in absorbance of Fe(III)-SCN (0.10 and 0.0020 mol L-1) in the presence of NO2- (0.3 mol L-1) is proportional to the concentration. of iodide, with linear response up to 100.0 µg I- L-1. The detection limit was determined as 0.99 µg I- L-1 (3s blank/slope); and the system handles 48 samples h-1. Organic matter was destroyed by a dry procedure carried out under alkaline conditions. Alternatively, the use of Schoeninger combustion after milk dehydration was evaluated. The residue was taken up in 0.12 mol L-1 KOH solubilization. For typical samples, recoveries varied from 94.5 to 105%, based on the amounts of both organic matter destroyed. The accuracy of the method was established by using a certified reference material (IAEA A-11, milk powder) and a manual method.
