Abstract

The reagent 2-hydroxy-4-n-butoxy-5-bromopropiophenone thiosemicarbazone (HBBrPT) has been used for the determination of Cd(II) by using spectrophotometric method. The reagent HBBrPT gave an intense yellow colour with Cd(II) solution in basic medium. The maximum absorbance was observed at 440 nm, in basic buffer solution (pH 10.00). The molor absorptivity and Sandell’s sensitivity of Cd(II)-HBBrPT complex were 4035 mol-1 cm-1 and 0.02765 μg cm-2 respectively. The stability constant of 1:2 Cd(II)-HBBrPT complex was 8.46×106. The effect of various iron was also studied.
