A lecture/laboratory manual dealing with the analysis of selected inorganic pollutants. The manual is an instructional aid for classroom presentations to those with little or no experience in the field, but having one year (or equivalent) of college level inorganic chemistry and having basic laboratory skills including use of balances, volumetric glassware and titration assemblies. Topics in the manual are test procedures for acidity and alkalinity (titrations to pH end points), hardness (EDTA titration), chlorine (amperometric back titration), total phosphorus (persulfate digestion, ascorbic acid reduction, colorimetry), fluoride (SPADNS colorimetry and ion electrode), nitrate and nitrite (cadmium reduction, colorimetry), total and suspended solids (gravimetric), turbidity (nephelometer), and specific conductance (Wheatstone bridge conductivity meter). Other topics are sample handling; compliance methodology; accuracy, precision and error of data; elements of quality assurance programs.
