The concentration of total Sb in zinc plant electrolytes is determined by anodic stripping voltammetry (ASV) in 5 mol/L HCl. If 0.6 mol/L HCl is used, only the concentration of antimony(III) is determined selectively. The interference of an excess of Cu is suppressed by the selective oxidation of Cu. Nevertheless, the concentration of Cu in the sample limits the amount of sample that can be used for the determination.
