Chromium(VI) in electronic components as part of electrotechnical products


The EU directive on «Restriction of Hazardous Substances» (RoHS) requires the testing of four regulated heavy metals (Pb, Hg, Cd, Cr(VI)) in electrotechnical products. After sample preparation according to IEC 62321 the determination of chromium(VI) in electronic components can be carried out by polarography in ammonia buffer pH 9.6.
