Abstract Sample digestion is the most time‐consuming step in the elemental analysis of agricultural and food products. Moreover, a proper digestion procedure is crucial, because it affects the accuracy and precision of the analysis. In this study, a digestion procedure using sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as digestion reagents was optimized for whole grains (chickpea, wheat, and safflower) and dry matter (wheat straw and pea). Several digestion parameters as quantity of… CONTINUE READING
