A rapid, highly-specific polarographic method, based on shift of the uranium(V)-uranium(III) half-wave potential, has been developed for precise determination of fluoride in the concentration range 2.5 X 10-6(H to 10-3M (0.05 to 20 ppm). Because the method requires no prior separation or concentration of the fluoride, it is particularly applicable to analysis of potable waters. With simple modification, it can be used to determine higher fluoride concentrations and it has been applied successfully to the analysis of a wide range of inorganic fluorides.
