Automatic photometric determination of manganese using the Optrode 

Main document

Manganese is determined as Mn(II) in aqueous solutions at pH 10 with Eriochrome Black T as indicator. Ascorbic acid is added to ensure that manganese is present in its bivalent form. The precipitation of water-insoluble manganese hydroxide is prevented by adding triethanolamine (TEA). The Optrode is used for detection at a wavelength of 610 nm.
