Vanadometric estimation of germanium

  • B. V. Narayana
  • N. Appala Raju


Germanium is determined titrimetrically using sodium vanadate as the oxidant, after reducing Ge(IV) to Ge(II) by sodium hypophosphite. Germanium in presence of the associated elements like zinc, cadmium, arsenic and silver as well as in the synthetic mixture of germanium-cadmium sulphide has been estimated.
