Detergents can be introduced into the water supply by industry, soap manufacturers, and private households. Environmental analysts often include a determination of anionic detergents when assessing surface water pollution.

The Methylene Blue Method

References: USEPA Methods for Chemical Analysis of Water and Wastes, Method 425.1 (1983). APHA Standard Methods, 22nd ed., Method 5540 C - 2000. ASTM D 2330-02, Methylene Blue Active Substances.

The methylene blue active substances (MBAS) method is used in a 3-minute procedure to measure anionic detergents. The procedure features a unique extraction/sampling technique that eliminates several steps required in other test procedures and provides increased sensitivity.

Anionic detergents react with methylene blue to form a blue-colored complex that is extracted into an immiscible organic solvent. Results are expressed in ppm (mg/L) as linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS), equivalent weight 325.

Range: 0-2.50 ppm 

Method: Methylene Blue
