Method 335.1

Cyanides, Amenable To Chlorination (Titrimetric; Spectrophotometric)

This method is for the determination of cyanides amenable to chlorination in drinking, surface and saline waters, domestic and industrial wastes. The titration procedure is used for measuring concentrations of cyanide exceeding 1 mg/L after removal of the cyanides amenable to chlorination. Below this level the colorimetric determination is used.

A portion of the sample is chlorinated at a pH > 11 to decompose cyanides amenable to chlorination (CATC). Cyanide levels in the chlorinated sample and unchlorinated sample are then determined using a method for total cyanide. Cyanides amenable to chlorination are then calculated by difference of concentrations in the unchlorinated and chlorinated sample.
