TKN analysis of environmental samples: soil and wastewater Kjeldahl nitrogen determination

TKN Analysis of Environmental Samples: Soil and Wastewater Kjeldahl Nitrogen Determination

In this video, we take a show TKN analysis, a critical method for determining total Kjeldahl nitrogen (TKN) in soil and wastewater samples.

TKN is a key indicator of the nitrogen content in environmental samples, providing critical information for monitoring and assessing environmental impacts. We demonstrate each step of the Kjeldahl method for TKN determination, which involves digestion, distillation and titration, and how it can be applied to both soil and wastewater samples.
