Full Description Specification Manuals

The HI-3854 zinc portable test kit makes monitoring easy, quick and safe.

Zinc reacts with the zincon reagent to form a brownish-green to blue complex in a solution buffered at alkaline pH.

Since other metals can form coloured complexes with zincon, cyanide is added to complex zinc and any other heavy metal present. Then, cyclohexanone is added to selectively free zinc from its cyanide complex so that it can react with zincon to form the final blue coloured product. The amount of colour developed is proportional to the concentration of zinc present in the aqueous sample.
