Summary: Five new bromobenzoyl thiourea derivatives (1-5) linked with different amino acids were synthesized via the reaction of bromobenzoyl chloride with potassium thiocyanide and the corresponding amines.
However, interference was observed from [Cu.sup.2+], [Ni.sup.2+], [Hg.sup.2+], and [Zn.sup.2+] ions that can be eliminated by using 0.2 x [10.sup.-3] M thiosulphate and thiocyanide. No leaching of the indicator dye from MPS was observed over a long period of time ([greater than or equal to] 4 months), with only slight changes in the absorption spectra.
A suitable aliquots (1-2mL) were transferred into a 10mL calibrated flask and the copper content was determined as described under general procedure using fluoride or thiocyanide solution as a masking agent and quantified from a calibration graph prepared concurrently.
