Rapid technique for dissolution of nitrides.
Anal Chem 1972 Apr; 44(4):887-888
Tin(II)-strong phosphoric acid reagent was found to be a remarkable medium for dissolving many transition metal nitrides without loss of nitrogen. Furthermore, the decomposition of the nitrides takes place within a few minutes. The reagent will work with tin, zrn, hfn, un, aln, and niobium oxynitride. Vanadium nitrides and boron nitride would not completely decompose. Because of lack of a sample, analysis of silicon nitride was not attempted.
