3 Principle
The specimen is first separated from non-magnetic substances by magnetic
separation. Under electromagnetic stirring conditions, use ferric chloride-
sodium acetate buffer solution (pH 2.2~2.4) to selectively dissolve metallic iron.
After separation by filtration, use potassium dichromate standard titration
solution titrate the filtrate. Other reduced substances and oxidized substances
such as high-valent manganese interfere with this method. Calculate the
content of metallic iron according to the consumption of potassium dichromate
standard titration solution.
4 Reagents
Unless otherwise specified, in the analysis, it shall only use the confirmed
analytically-pure reagents and grade three and above distilled water specified
in GB/T 6682 or deionized water or equivalent-pure water.
4.1 Anhydrous ethanol.
4.2 Mixed sulfuric acid: 2+3+5.
Pour 300mL of phosphoric acid (ρ=1.70g/mL) into 500mL of water under stirring.
Then slowly add 200mL of sulfuric acid (ρ=1.84g/mL). Mix well.
4.3 Ferric chloride solution: 30g/L.
Weigh 30g of ferric chloride (FeCl3•6H2O) and dissolve in 1000mL of water. Mix
well (if the solution is cloudy, it shall be used after filtering).
4.4 Ferric chloride-sodium acetate solution: pH is 2.2~2.4.
Take 100mL of ferric chloride solution (see 4.3) and add 3g of sodium acetate
(NaAc•3H2O). Mix well. Use pH meter to measure its pH value. If the pH value
is unsatisfactory, add ferric chloride solution (see 4.3) or sodium acetate (NaAc
•3H2O) to adjust. Prepare it when it is required.
4.5 Potassium dichromate standard titration solution: c(1/6K2Cr2O7) =
Weigh 0.9806g of potassium dichromate (standard reagent) that is pre-dried at
150°C for 1h and dissolve in water. Transfer to a 1000mL volumetric flask. Use
water to dilute to the scale. Mix well.
4.6 Ferrous ammonium sulfate solution: about 0.01mol/L.
Weigh 7.88g of ferrous ammonium sulfate [(NH4)2Fe(SO4)2·6H2O] and dissolve
in sulfuric acid (5+95). Transfer to a 2000mL volumetric flask. Use sulfuric acid
(5+95) to dilute to the scale. Mix well.
4.7 Sodium diphenylamine sulfonate indicator solution: 2g/L.
Weigh 0.1g of sodium diphenylamine sulfonate and dissolve it in 50mL of water.
Add 2 to 3 drops of concentrated sulfuric acid (ρ=1.84g/mL). Use after the
solution is clear.
4.8 Pickled asbestos: Take 10g of pickled asbestos and burn at 900°C for more
than 2h in advance. Leave it for future use.
5 Instruments
In the analysis, only common laboratory instruments are used. The burettes,
single-marked volumetric flasks and single-marked pipettes used shall comply
with the provisions of GB/T 12805, GB/T 12806 and GB/T 12808, respectively.
5.1 Glass petri dish: 9cm~12cm in diameter.
5.2 Ferrite magnet: the magnetic field strength is 1000Oe.
5.3 Non-magnetic metal iron core stirrer.
5.4 Adjustable speed magnetic stirrer.
6 Sampling and sample preparation
6.1 Laboratory specimen
Laboratory specimens for analysis shall be sampled and prepared in
accordance with GB/T 10322.1. The particle size shall be less than 100μm. If
the content of combined water or easily oxidized in the specimen is high, the
particle size shall be less than 160μm.
NOTE: See GB/T 6730.1 for regulations on high content of combined water and easy
7.5.1 Decomposition of test material
Place the test material (see 7.2) in a dry Petri dish (see 5.1). Add 15mL~20mL
of ethanol (see 4.1). Mix well. Place one end of the ferrite magnet (see 5.2) with
a field strength of 1000Oe in a clean small beaker (the diameter of the small
beaker is slightly larger than that of the magnet). Use a small beaker to gently
grind the test material in a petri dish several times. Lightly lift the small beaker.
Rinse off non-magnetic substances with a narrow neck wash bottle filled with
ethanol. Move the small beaker over the second clean Petri dish. Take out the
magnet. Use a washing bottle to flush the magnetic substance attached to the
wall of the small beaker into this Petri dish. Repeat the above magnetic
separation action more than 5 times. Transfer all the magnetic material to the
second Petri dish.
Add 15mL~20mL of ethanol to the second Petri dish. Magnetic separation in
this petri dish. Repeat the above magnetic separation steps for more than 3
times until no magnetic substances are adsorbed in the petri dish. Wash the
final selected magnetic substance into a 250mL beaker. After attaching the
magnet to the bottom of the beaker to attract the magnetic substance, slowly
pour out a small amount of non-magnetic substances and ethanol brought in by
inclusions. Pour out as much ethanol as possible. (If it is difficult to separate
non-magnetic minerals, the test material in the second petri dish can be washed
into another petri dish first. Repeat the above magnetic separation steps and
then magnetic separation more than 3 times to wash into the beaker.)
Add 30mL of ferric chloride-sodium acetate solution (see 4.4). Put in a non-
magnetic metal iron core stirrer (see 5.3). Cover the watch glass. Put on a
magnetic stirrer (see 5.4) and stir for 40min at a speed of 200r/min. Use
medium-speed qualitative filter paper (add appropriate amount of pulp) or acid-
washed asbestos (see 4.8) to filter. Use water to wash the beaker 3~4 times.
Wash the residue 6 to 8 times.
NOTE: During filtration, a flat magnet block can be used to absorb the magnetic minerals
at the bottom of the conical flask. Make it as little as possible into the filter paper. Pour
filtering, so as to speed up the filtration rate.
7.5.2 Determination of test material
Add 20 mL of thiophosphoric acid (see 4.2) to the filtrate (see 7.5.1). The control
volume is 120mL~150mL. Let stand until the yellow color subsides slightly. Add
5 drops of sodium diphenylamine sulfonate indicator solution (see 4.7). Use
potassium dichromate standard titration solution (see 4.5) to titrate to a stable
purple color.
7.5.3 Determination of blank value
Add 10.00mL of ferrous ammonium sulfate solution (see 4.6) and 20mL of
(CRM) or reference materials (RM). Final laboratory results are used for
comparison with CRM or RM standard value Ac. Two possibilities will arise:
a) , in this case, there is no significant difference
between the measured value and the standard value;
b) , in this case, there is a significant difference between
the measured value and the standard value.
µc - The measured value of CRM or RM;
Ac - The standard value of CRM or RM.
8.2.5 Calculation of final result
The final result is the arithmetic mean of the acceptable values for the specimen,
or the value determined by the procedure specified in Annex A. The analysis
result is rounded up according to the provisions of GB/T 8170. When the
analysis result is less than 1.00%, round the value to three decimal places.
When the analysis result is equal to or greater than 1.00%, round the value to
two decimal places.
