Simplified Atomic Absorption Determination of Stable Strontium in Milk and Hay: A Comparison of Methods and Stepwise Procedure.
Office of Research and Development, National Environmental Research Center, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Las Vegas, Nevada, Report No. EPA-680/4-73-002, 1974 Feb:421-424
A rapid and simplified atomic absorption procedure is described for determining stable strontium (7440246) in fluid milk, milk powder and alfalfa. The method does not require precipitation or ion exchange procedures. The ash solutions are analyzed directly in the atomic absorption spectrophotometer without ion exchange resin treatment of any kind. A comparison is made between the atomic absorption method of additions and the standard curve method. A suggested stepwise procedure is given as appendix.
