Determination of calcium in waters, milk and wine by discontinuous-flow analysis Academic Article uri icon


  • The flow-based analysis method, discontinuous-flow analysis (DFA), was used for the determination of total calcium in drinking water, milk and wine by titration with ethyleneglycoltetraacetic acid. The detector is a coated-wire calcium-selective electrode. The titration can be cycled continuously with a cycle time of about 1 min. This can be carried out with a single sample or with different samples using an autosampler. The method for waters and wine is simple, fast and highly reproducible. For milk, a back-titration method was used because of the complex matrix of the sample.
