A thorough literature search for methods of sulfate analysis has been completed. The results of the search with a very brief abstract of each method are attached as an appendix. The analytical methods have been reviewed for strengths and weaknesses, and the two most promising methods have been selected. Based on this review, the two recommended methods are the methyl thymol blue method described by A.L. Lazrus and the barium chloranilate method modified by H.N.S. Schafer and developed by R.J. Bertolacini and J.E. Barney, II. The results of this phase of the investigation have been submitted to EPA. Acceptance of the two recommended methods and approval to complete the investigation were received October 15, 1975.
