The digest was then analyzed spectrophotometrically after an offline reduction of nitrate to nitrite using a cadmium reductor column was completed. The precision of the method was tested at the 0.5 mg l-1 level and was 5.2% (N = 10). The detection limit based on S/N = 3 was calculated to be 0.15 mg l-1. The method was thoroughly validated by comparison of analytical techniques and intralaboratory comparison studies. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.||Source Title:||Analytical Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/84561||ISSN:||00032719||DOI:||10.1080/00032710902807797|
