dc.description.abstract A manual colorimetric method for determination of sulfide has been adapted to flow injection, systematically optimized, and more fully characterized. Its intended application is for measurement of sodium sulfide reagent strength in pulp process streams, and sulfide contamination in effluent from Kraft pulp mills. In the flow-injection method developed, a sample solution containing sulfide is reacted with a mixture of iron(III) and nitrilotriacetic acid under ammoniacal conditions. The absorbance of the intensely-colored green product of this reaction is measured at 636 nm. Excess sulfite is present as a color stabilizer. A linear dynamic range of 20–100 ppm sulfide is readily achieved; the relative standard deviation is less than 1.2% (n = 10) throughout this range, and 0.37% (n = 10) midrange at 60 ppm. The usable dynamic range is 8–250 ppm sulfide. Long-term stability of the method is ensured by periodically performing an automatic cleaning cycle using a hydrochloric acid wash solution. This prevents tube discoloration and removes any precipitates which are formed under strongly alkaline conditions. The sample throuhput rate is at least 30/hr, given alternate acid wash cycles. en_US
