Nitrate, Electrochemical Detection, Spectroscopy Detection


Real time water quality detection is the key for both National as well as International Safety and Health parameter as it can basically decrease the fatality and in addition, expenses on cure those issues. Consumers expect suppliers to provide clean potable water which meets wellness standards as well as the sensuous requirements such as turbidity, color, taste. Nitrate is one of the critical parameters for the evaluation of water quality. Excessive contamination of nitrates may cause harm not only to human being but also aqua life. Nitrate in water affect the human cells carrying oxygen to the blood. It can cause methemoglobinemia or blue baby syndrome and that’s why detection of nitrate is very crucial. The safety limit of nitrate detection is 10mg/l nitrate nitrogen. A variety of strategies have been proposed for detecting and monitoring nitrate in recent past (e.g. UV spectroscopy, electrochemical methodologies, and steam distillation reducing NH3, colorimetric pursuing reduction by Cd, hydrazine and ion chromatography). In this review, work shows electrochemical methodologies and spectroscopy methodologies for detection of nitrate. This paper basically investigates commercially available and modern research methods and gadgets worthy for detection of drinking water quality in real time and recommends advance improvements around there.
