EPA Method 325.2:
Chloride by Automated Colorimetry. Official Name: Chloride (Colorimetric, Automated Ferricyanide AII)

Summary:
Thiocyanate ion (SCN) is liberated from mercuric thiocyanate through sequestration of mercury by chloride ion to form un-ionized mercuric chloride. In the presence of ferric ion, the liberated SCN forms a highly colored ferric thiocyanate in concentration proportional to the original chloride concentration. Measurements of the colored complex are made using an automated spectrophotometer.

Scope:
This automated method determines chloride in drinking, surface, and saline waters; domestic and industrial wastes.
