The Determination of Phosphorous in Rocks Containing Vanadium

Description: From Abstract: "This paper describes a rapid routine procedure for the determination of phosphorous in the presence of vanadium. Vanadium is reduced with formic acid prior to precipitation of phosphorous as ammonium phosphomolybdate and the ammonium phosphomolybdate is weighed as such."
