EPA Method 335.1:
Cyanides, amenable to chlorination. Official Name: Cyanides, Amenable to Chlorination (Titrimetric; Spectrophotometric)

Summary:
A portion of sample is dechlorinated at pH > 11 to decompose cyanides amenable to chlorination (CATC). Cyanide levels in the chlorinated sample and unchlorinated sample are determined using a total cyanide procedure (e.g., EPA Method 335.2). CATC is determined by difference of cyanide concentrations in the unchlorinated and chlorinated sample.

Scope:
This method determines cyanides amenable to chlorination (CATC) in drinking, surface, and saline waters; domestic and industrial wastes.
