Abstract

The absorption spectra of kojic acid and of cadmium kojate in various solvents have been obtained. From this data, the suitability of kojic acid as a possible analytical reagent for the determination of very small amounts of cadmium in water using ultraviolet absorption methods is discussed. Kojic acid is found to be not suitable for analysis of cadmium using ultraviolet absorption methods.
