Field Kit (development), mixed reagent, (N-(1-napthyl) ethylenediamine dihydrochloride, sulphanilamine, calibration graph, on-site determination of nitrite
The transient nature of the nitrite ion and its toxicity make on-site determinations preferable to ensure actual values are obtained for analytical data integrity. A simple, compact and cheap field kit for the on-site determination of nitrite in water and environmental samples is presented using a method of colour development based on mixed reagents - (N-(1-napthyl) ethylenediamine dihydrochloride and sulphanilamide) with standard nitrite solutions used to calibrate the field kit before determination of the nitrite in water samples. Results indicate the method is sensitive, selective and reproducible and would provide a reliable method for the determination of nitrite in water and environmental samples on-site.
