A Method for the Determination of Traces of Metals III : Studies of the Distillation of Amalgams

Description: Summary: "It has been demonstrated that the electrolysis-distillation stages of the procedure that has been developed for traces of metals may be utilized, with certain precautions, to recover milligram quantities of cadmium, cobalt, copper, iron, nickel and zinc. Lead remains partially as undissolved lead sulfate and hence the recovery of amounts ranging from 1 - 5 mg. is not advisable by this procedure."
