Abstract

Methods for the determination of urea in biological fluids have passed through an interesting cycle (cf. Peters and Van Slyke (3) pp. 539-544). The earliest procedures were strictly chemical ones, involving precipitation of the urea as an insoluble mercury complex or decomposition of the urea by means of heat or hypobromite. The use of the highly specific… (More)
