Abstract

An investigation of the use of HCl in Klein's method [see Official Methods of Analysis (1975) 12th Ed., AOAC, Arlington, Virginia, USA, sections 25.108-25.115] to prevent loss of mercury during wet digestion resulted in consistently good recoveries from jowar and fish samples. Recoveries for the modified method ranged from 90.9 to 97.0% compared with 14.4 to 35.5% for the original method.
