Abstract : An accurate spectrophotometric method is proposed for the determination of PETN (pentaerythritol tetranitrate) in waste water from lead styphnate primer plants by use of phenoldisulfonic acid. In the method the waste water is filtered through a sintered glass crucible and the PETN is determined in the filtrate and the residue. Various factors effecting the determination were investigated. The solubility of PETN in water was studied. (Modified author abstract)
