Abstract

Advances in chemistry are often limited by available analytical techniques. The chemist requires not only diverse analytical procedures, but extremely sensitive ones as well, since he is continually examining intramolecular mechanisms and investigating the functions of chemical agents which are active in extremely low coccentrat1ons. Sensitive inorganic analyses based on fluorometry and utilizing specific fluorescence yielding chelating agents constitute a rapidly growing and important area of present-day chemical research. This paper attempts to develop the conditions under which N- 8-quinolyl-p-toluenesulfonamide may be used as a fluorometric qualitative and quantitative test for zinc and cadmium.
