Abstract An analytical procedure for the spectrophotometric determination of microgram quantities of chromium in uranium, based on the extraction of the 8- hydroxyquinaldine (2-methyl-8-quinolinol) complex with chloroform and photometry of the extract, is described. Extraction of uranium was prevented by the use of acetic acid as a masking agent. The behaviors of the common ions were investigated. To eliminate the interference of iron and other elements, the chloroform extract was washed with a carbonate-cyanidehydroxylamine mixture. The proposed method is precise and accurate, and is useful for the determination of down to 1 ppm of chromium in uranium. (auth)
