Product Description

Nitroso-PSAP is a highly sensitive water-soluble colorimetric reagent for Fe(II) detection that forms a green complex with Fe(II) (λmax=756 nm, ε=4.5×104 ). This reagent is suitable for the determination of blood serum levels of Fe, Co, Ni, and Cu. The detection range is from 5 ppb to 5 ppm under the same detection condition. Nitroso-PSAP is useful in flow injection analyses. The workable pH range of the nitroso compounds is 5.6-10.1. The molar absorptivities and maximum wavelengths of the Co, Cu, and Ni complexes are 4.0×104 (490 nm), 2.8×104 (429 nm), and 2.6×104 (394 nm), respectively.
