    Spectrophotometric method is utilized for evaluating the phosphorus composition in different grades of cast iron. The sample is dissolved in mixed acids and the solution is fumed with perchloric acid. Ammonium molybdate is added to react with the phosphorus to form the heteropoly-phosphomolybdate. This species is then reduced with hydrazine sulfate to form the molybdenum blue complex. Spectrophotometric measurement is made at 650 nm or 825 nm, depending upon the concentration. The results are reported as follows:

    Test SpecimenPercent Phosphorus
    Cast iron 15Ni-2Cr-5Cu (NBS 115, 0.114 P)0.107
    Cast iron (NBS 5k, 0.263 P)0.257
    Cast iron (NBS 7g, 0.794 P)0.779
