Gas chromatographic microdetermination of iodine by derivatization with ketones

Microchimica Acta Aims and scope Submit manuscript


Derivatization of iodine with 2-butanone, 2-pentanone, or 3-pentanone yield products which have greater response to electron capture detection and which are extracted more completely than the product of the iodine reaction with propanone. Both these observations support the extention of the gas chromatographic determination of iodine into the ng/ml range.


Jod bildet mit 2-Butanon, 2-Pentanon und 3-Pentanon Derivate, auf die der Elektroneneinfang-Detektor besser anspricht und die vollständiger extrahierbar sind als das entsprechende Reaktionsprodukt mit Aceton. Diese Feststellungen sind für die gas-chromatographische Bestimmung von Jod im Nanogramm-Bereich von Bedeutung.
