Development and validation of an analytical method for determination of polyhexamethylene biguanide level in the presence of quaternary ammonium compounds in recreational water

A novel analytical method to measure Polyhexamethylene Biguanide (PHMB) in swimming pools and spas was developed. This method utilizes nickel (II) chloride and 1,2-cyclohexanedionedioxime (nioxime) chemistry. This method will be called nickel-nioxime. Nickel ions bind and neutralize PHMB in the solu...
