A new method for determining the O/U ratio in uranium oxide is described. The method consists of dissolving an accurately weighed sample in a known excess of ceric ammonium nitrate in 2N perchloric acid at room temperature and estimating the unreacted Ce/IV/ with benzohydroxamic acid. A standard deviation of 0.0016 for ten estimations is observed.
