Abstract

The number and kinds of available analytical techniques are a limiting factor in chemical advancement. It is essential that the chemist have sensitive as well as diverse analytical procedures, particularly in his investigations involving species in extremely small concentrations. A rapidly growing and important area of current chemical research is based on fluorometry and utilizes specific fluorescence-yielding chelating agents for inorganic analyses. N-8-quinolyl-p-toluenesulfonamide is one of these specific reagents, which has already been used in fluorometric analysis for both zinc and cadmium. This paper attempts to develop the conditions under which this same reagent may be used for fluorometric quantitative determination of aluminum and lead.
