Application of the phenol-hypochlorite reaction to measurement of ammonia concentrations in Kjeldahl digests of serum and various tissues.

Abstract

Conditions have been defined that enable the use of nitroprusside as a catalyst for the phenol-hypochiorite reaction when the latter is applied to measurement of nitrogen in Kjeldahl digests containing mercury. This is accomplished by lowering the concentration of mercury to a range where it remains effective in accelerating the destruction of organic… (More)
