Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
By analysis for bromide in water, wastewater, and brackish waters, it is possible to evaluate the origin of the water, its potential as a source of bromide, and its condition with regard to pollution.
1.1 This test method is applicable to the measurement of bromide ion in water, ground water, and drinking water.
1.2 Samples containing 0.5 mg/L to 1000 mg/L of bromide may be analyzed by this test method. The concentration range may be extended by the dilution of an appropriate aliquot.
1.3 The precision and bias statements were determined on natural and ground waters. It is the responsibility of the analyst to assure the validity of this test method for untested matrices.
1.4 A titrimetric and two colorimetric test methods for iodide and bromide were discontinued. Refer to Appendix X1 for historical information.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
