Iridium is preconcentrated from the large volume of its aqueous solution using 1-(2-pyridylazo-2-naphthol) (PAN) on microcrystalline naphthalene in the pH range of 4.5-6.0. The solid mass after filtration is dissolved with 5 ml of dimethylformamide (DMF) and the metal determined by first derivative spectrophotometry. The detection limit is 20 ppb (signal to noise ratio = 2) and the calibration curve...
