Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO 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.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO’s adherence to the

World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT), see www.iso.org/

iso/foreword.html.

IULTCS, originally formed in 1897, is a world-wide organization of professional leather societies to

further the advancement of leather science and technology. IULTCS has three Commissions, which

are responsible for establishing international methods for the sampling and testing of leather. ISO

recognizes IULTCS as an international standardizing body for the preparation of test methods for

leather.

Leather — Chemical determination of metal content —
Part 2:
Total metal content
1 S cope

This document specifies a method for the determination of the total metal content in leather using

digestion of the leather and subsequent determination with inductively coupled plasma optical emission

spectrometry (ICP-OES), inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), atomic absorption

spectrometry (AAS) or spectrometry of atomic fluorescence (SFA).

This method determines the total metal content in leather. It is not compound-specific or specific to the

oxidation state of the metals.
The method is applicable for determining the following metals:
Aluminium (Al) Copper (Cu) Potassium (K)
Antimony (Sb) Iron (Fe) Selenium (Se)
Arsenic (As) Lead (Pb) Silicon (Si)
Barium (Ba) Magnesium (Mg) Sodium (Na)
Cadmium (Cd) Manganese (Mn) Tin (Sn)
Calcium (Ca) Mercury (Hg) Titanium (Ti)
Chromium (Cr) (except chromium-tanned leathers) Molybdenum (Mo) Zinc (Zn)
Cobalt (Co) Nickel (Ni) Zirconium (Zr)
This method is also suitable for determining Boron (B) in leather.

In the case of chromium-tanned leathers, it is often more relevant to use ISO 5398-1, ISO 5398-2,

ISO 5398-3 or ISO 5398-4.

Interlaboratory test results and the quantification limits possible with ICP-OES are given in Tables A.1

and A.2.

For the determination of Al and Ti in leather, a digestion procedure is given in Annex B.

4 Principle

Digestion of the sample of leather (see ISO 4044) is carried out using a ternary acid mixture or

microwave digestion until complete mineralization is achieved. The residue is re-dissolved with water

and analysed by AAS, ICP or SFA (for mercury).
The results are reported on the dry matter of the leather.
5 Reagents

WARNING — The concentrated acids used in this method are very corrosive and/or oxidising

liquids, which could raise the possibility of fire in the event of contact with ignitable materials

and promote an existing fire considerably, or could decompose explosively with warming. They

might cause acute or chronic health dangers as well. Mo
