A fluorescence quenching method is described for the determination of trace amounts of vanadium(V) based on the formation of a complex in acidic medium with a new reagent [1(3-methoxysalicylideneamino)-8-hydroxy-3,6-naphthalene disulfonic acid, disodium salt]. The fluorescence emission is measured at 415 nm (wavelength of excitation 360 nm), and the experimental variables and interferences in this determination have been studied. The detection limit is 12.5 ng/ml and linear range is between 50 and 600 ng/ml. The method has been applied to determine trace vanadium(V) in steel and cast iron.
