Supplement to A.S.T. M. Methods of Chemical Analyses of Metals.—This method is a revision of and supersedes the former Tentative Method of Quantitative Speetrochemical Analysis of Zinc Alloy Die Castings tor Minor Constituents and Impurities (E 27 - 35 T) which latter method appears on pages 248 to 254 of the Society's publication "A.S.T. M. Methods of. dhjeyiipil Analyses of Metals (1936;." Since this method replaces the former Tentative * leffrod^fy^ 3Ä'I^ this copy should be substituted in the compilation of Methods of Chemical Anatv?esw|petals.

1. This method3 refers particularly to the analysis of zinc-base die- CC^ casting Alloy Nos. XXI and XXIII, covered by the Tentative Specifica-
tions for Zinc-Base Alloy Die Castings (A.S.T. M. Designation: B 86 - 38 T)_
of the American Society for Testing Materials.4 The method includes thej determination of copper in Alloy No. XXIII and of magnesium, iron, lead,! " «. tin and cadmium in Alloys Nos. XXI and XXIII. The determination ofj " '3 8 nickel in an alloy differing from Alloy No. XXIII by the presence of nickel) S:'" ^ as a minor constituent is also included. An arc spectrum is used, employing 5 graphite electrodes, one of which is treated with a solution of the sample tcj^ be analyzed. Quantitative estimations are made by the comparison of the; , ? spectrum of the sample with the spectra of standard samples of known. „ composition. '■'
Preparation of Sample Solution
2. A 20-g. portion -F a representative hturtpF "•! the alloy to be analyzed shall be v/eighed, placed u. a 250-ml. beaker, and dissolved In an equal voiitnse nurture of concentrated hydrochloric and nitric acids. If the volume of the solution is greater than 30 ml it -hall be evaporated to approximately 50 ml., cooled, transferred t-- a l0("-»d. graduate, nitric acid added to bring the volume to 60 ml. and the soktiui transferred to a small, glass-stoppered bottle, This procedure shall be repeated, thus making available duplicate sample solutions.
