Why sulfuric acid is used in sulphated ash / residue on ignition test...

Answer / dilip m patil

1)The gravimetric technique is used to perform the residue
ignition test or sulphated ash test. The residue obtained
after sulfuric acid treatemnt is chemically and thermally
stable and it fulfiles principles of gravimetric analysis
techique.
2)The residue obtained without use of sulphuric acid are
sensitive to carbon dioxide and moisture present in lab.
atomosphere. Hence the residues composition changes and
ultimately mass of residues changes during final weighing
of residue and the accuracy and precision of test will be
questionable.

Why sulfuric acid is used in sulphated ash / residue on ignition test...

Answer / mrutyunjay tripathy

Sulphuric acid is a strong oxidising agent which oxidises
the carbon present in the organic samples resulting CO2 &
H2O and converts the metals into their sulphates which can
be easily extracted to perform the heavy metal test.

Answer / aamir sohail

it converts most of the metals into their sulphates but not all like phosphorus does not converted into sulphates it remain same till the end of the test, than these metal sulphates further proceed for heavy metal test that how much amount of which metal present in it...
