Standard Test Method for Determination of Copper in Anode and Blister Copper (Withdrawn 2016)

Significance and Use

This test method for the determination of copper in anode (99.0 to 99.8 %) and blister copper (92.0 to 98.0 %) is primarily intended as a referee method, to test such materials for compliance with compositional specifications. It is assumed that users of this test method will be trained analysts capable of performing common laboratory procedures skillfully and safely. It is expected that work will be performed in a properly equipped laboratory.

This test method is intended to determine the copper content of commercial anode and blister copper. Those elements that interfere are removed by precipitation or volatilization, or both. Copper is electrodeposited as the metal and weighed.

This method will also be found useful for the electrolytic determination of copper in some copper alloys and scrap.


1.1 This test method describes the electrolytic determination of copper in commercial anode (99.0 to 99.8%) and blister copper (92.0 to 98.0 %).

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. Specific hazards statements are given in Section 9.
