    Abstract

    The analysis for soluble heavy metals and cyanide in waste materials and other complex matrices can be assisted by the use of chloroform. Chloroform was used in a test procedure designed to simulate codisposal of waste with municipal refuse. Chloroform was found to be effective in removing interferences to metals analysis.
