    • Abstract


      Ammonium dithiocarbamate has been standardized with EDTA solution and its use for the estimation of milligram quantities of copper has been reported. Copper is titrated at +0.2 V vs SCE in ammonium tartrate-potassium nitrateammonia buffer using the rotating platinum micro-electrode. Copper has also been estimated in binary solutions with cadmium and mercury. The accuracy of the procedure is comparable to that obtained with other classical methods.
