IS0 11732: 1997(E) Foreword lS0 (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (IS0 member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through IS0 technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non- governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. IS0 collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization. Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote. International Standard IS0 11732 was prepared by Technical Committee ISORC 147, Water quality, Subcommittee SC 2, Physical, chemical and biochemical methods. Annexes A to D of this International Standard are for information only. 0 IS0 1997 All rights reserved.

IS0 11732: 1997(E) Introduction Methods using flow analysis are automatized wet chemical procedures and are therefore particularly suitable for the processing of large sample series at a high analysis frequency (up to 100 samples per hour). One differentiates between flow injection analysis (FIA) [l], [2] and continuous flow analysis (CFA) [3]. Both methods include the automatic dosage of the sample into a flow system (manifold) in which the analytes in the sample react with the reagent solutions on their way through the manifold. The sample preparation may be integrated in the manifold. The reaction product is analysed spectrometrically in a flow detector. . . . III SIST EN ISO 11732:1999

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD @ IS0 IS0 11732:1997(E) Water quality - Determination of ammonium nitrogen by flow analysis (CFA and FIA) and spectrometric detection 1 Determination of ammonium nitrogen by flow injection analysis (FIA) and spectrometric detection 1.1 Scope 1 A.1 Field of application This International Standard specifies a method suitable for the determination of ammonium nitrogen in various types of waters (such as ground, drinking, surface and waste waters) in mass concentrations ranging from 0,l to 10 mg/l (in the undiluted sample). In particular cases, the range of application may be adapted by varying the operating conditions. 1 A.2 interferences Volatile amines will diffuse through the membrane and lead to a pH shift. If the concentrations of the volatile amines (e.g. methylamine or ethylamine) are equal to those of the ammonium, erroneously high results may be expected WI. In significant cases, prior to analysis an (online) distillation of the sample, adjusted to a pH of 5,8 may be necessary. Interferences may occur in exceptional cases when the sample does not reach a pH at least 12 after the addition of the alkaline reagent, since then ammonium will not be converted quantitatively into ammonia. In particular, this may occur with strongly acidic or buffered samples. In such cases the pH of the sample should be adjusted to 3 to 5 by the addition of sodium hydroxide solution (1.4.1 or 1.4.2). High concentrations of metal ions which may precipitate as hydroxides will give poorly reproducible results. The addition of a suitable complexing agent, such as (ethylenedinitrilo)tetraacetic acid, disodium salt, to the alkaline reaction solution (1.4.17) in a sufficiently large concentration will prevent interference by Cu, Zn, Fe, Ca, Mg and Al; up to individual metal concentrations of 0,2 mg/l, a concentration of 30 g/l of ethylenedinitrilotetraacetic acid, disodium salt, in solution RI (see 1.4.17) is adequate. For samples containing particulate matter, see 1.6 (last paragraph). Samples with a total salt concentration of > 10 g/l should be diluted prior to measurement. 1.2 Normative references The following standards contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of this International Standard. All standards are subject to revision, and parties to agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to investigate the possibility of applying the most recent editions of the standards indicated below.

IS0 5667-3:1994, Water quality - Sampling - Part 3: Guidance on the preservation and handling of samples. 1.3 Principle The test sample containing ammonium is injected into a continuous carrier stream by means of an injection valve, and is mixed with a continuous flow of an alkaline solution. The ammonia formed is separated in a diffusion cell from the solution over a hydrophobic semipermeable membrane and taken up by a streaming recipient flow containing a pH indicator. Due to the resulting pH shift, the indicator solution will change colour; the colour change is monitored continuously in a flow spectrophotometer. Additional information concerning this analytical technique is given in [4], j51, PI, 171 and PI. 1.4 Reagents Apart from the reagents listed in II .4.4 to 1.4.6, use only reagents of analytical grade quality for the determination of nitrogen or, if not available, those of recognized analytical grade quality and water of grade 1 (in accordance with IS0 3696), freshly prepared.

The mass concentrations of ammonium, expressed as nitrogen, in these calibration solutions are respectively 1 mg/l, 3 mg/l, 5 mg/l, 7 mg/l and 9 mg/l. b) Working range II [for mass concentrations ~B(N) = 0,l mg/l to 1,O mg/l]: Pipette into a series of graduated flasks, nominal capacity 100 ml each, 1 ml, 3 ml, 5 ml, 7 ml and 9 ml respectively of the ammonium standard solution II (1.4.22), and make up to volume with water. The mass concentrations of ammonium, expressed as nitrogen, in these calibration solutions are respectively 0,l mg/l, 0,3 mg/l, 0,5 mg/l, 0,7 mg/l and 0,9 mg/l. All calibration solutions shall freshly be prepared before use. 1.5 Apparatus 1.5.1 Flow injection system In general, the flow injection system consists of the following components (see figure 1): reagent reservoirs; - low pulsation pump; - suitable pump tubes, if required; - injection valve with a suitable injection volume; - diffusion cell with hydrophobic semipermeable membrane [e.g. made from polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)]. NOTE - Example of a typical membrane: - thickness: 150 pm to 200 pm; - pore size: 0,5 pm to 2,0 pm; - porosity: 75 %. - transport tubes and reaction coils, internal diameter 0,5 mm to 0,8 mm, tube connections and T-connections of inert plastic and with minimum dead volumes; - spectrophotometric detector with flow cell, normal path length 10 mm to 50 mm, wavelength range 580 nm to 600 nm; - recording unit (e.g. strip chart recorder, integrator or printer/plotter).

All containers coming in contact with the sample shall be cleaned thoroughly with hydrochloric acid I, II or Ill (1.4.11 to 1.4.13) and shall be rinsed several times with water. Analyze the samples immediately after collection. Alternatively, add sulfuric acid (1.4.14) to adjust to a pH of approximately 2, store at 2 “C to 5 “C in the dark, and analyze within the next 24 h. In exceptional cases, the sample may be stored up to 2 weeks provided it has been membrane-filtered after acidification. The applicability of this preservation procedure shall be checked for each individual case. If there is a risk of clogging the injection system transport tubes, the samples shall be filtered before analysis. 1.7 Procedure 1.7.1 Preparation of the measurement Prior to measurement, continuously run the reagent solutions C, R1 and R2 for approximately 10 min through the flow injection system, record and zero the baseline. The system is ready when the baseline no longer shows any drift. A satisfactory signal-to-noise ratio should be obtained. Check the reagent blank and the operation of the membrane in accordance with 1.7.3. Calibrate the system as described in 1.7.4. SIST EN ISO 11732:1999

IS0 11732: 1997(E) @ IS0 1.7.2 Quality requirements for the measuring system In the measuring system being calibrated for working range I, a calibration solution (1.4.23) with mass concentration 0,5 mg/l shall give an absorbance of at least 0,040 per 10 mm pathlength. NOTE - If the spectrophotometric detector does not give any absorbance readings, the absorbance may then be determined by comparing with an external absorbance-measuring spectrometer. 1.7.3 Checking reagent blank Wait for the baseline to stabilize. Instead of the alkaline reagent solution RI, run water through the system until a stable signal is obtained. Record the change in absorbance. If the absorbance changes by more than 0,l per 10 mm pathlength, either the water being used or the alkaline reagent solution may be contaminated with ammonium, or the semipermeable membrane may be faulty. Appropriate measures shall then be taken to remedy the fault. Run the reagent solutions again. 1.7.4 Calibration Select working range I or II and prepare the calibration solutions for the selected working range (1.4.23). Perform a separate calibration for each working range. For working range I, use an injection volume of 40 ~1, for working range II a volume of 400 ~1. Prior to the calibration, zero the system, in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, if necessary. Calibrate by alternately injecting calibration solutions and blank solution.
