Total Nitrogen, Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen, and Total Phosphorus as per ASTM D8001


Kjeldahl nitrogen is a typical titration application that follows digestion and ammonia distillation. The ASTM Standard D8001 now offers an alternative applying persulfate digestion followed by IC determination. No distillation is required. In addition, the method enables the determination of total nitrogen and total phosphorus. We show the results of control samples containing organic substances. As these substances are dissolved in ultrapure water, the nitrogen concentration found corresponds to Total Nitrogen and Kjeldahl Nitrogen.
