Spectrophotometric determination of selenium(IV) with 5,5-dimethyl-1,3-cyclohexanedione
5,5-Dimethyl-1,3-cyclohexanedione (dimedone) reacts in acid aqueous solution with selenium(IV) to give a benzoxaselenol which has an absorption maximum at 313 nm with a molar absorptivity of 4.00 × 103 l.mole−1.cm−1. The compound is extractable into chloroform, to give a solution with an absorption maximum at 300 nm with a molar absorptivity of 3.77 × 103 l.mole−1.cm−1. The calibration graph is linear up to 30 ppm selenium, with a detection limit of 0.1 ppm in the final solutions. Of the various other ions tested, only iron(III) interferes at all concentrations but the addition of 1000 ppm fluoride will mask 50 ppm Fe3+. The method has good reproducibility, with a relative standard deviation of 1.0% for pure solutions. The method has been applied to the analysis of fire-refined copper.
