      An initial-rate potentiometric method for the determination of uric acid using a fluoride ion-selective electrode.

      The principle of a general potentiometric method based on Emerson-Trinder reaction for the assay of various hydrogen peroxide generating systems is reported. Emerson-Trinder reaction, habitually employed as a spectrophotometric indicator reaction, is exploited in this method as a potentiometric indicator reaction. This method is based on the detection of F(-) ions, liberated from the oxidation of a fluorophenol compound used as hydrogen-donor in Emerson-Trinder reaction, by a fluoride ion-selective electrode. The ability and usefulness of this method are illustrated by an initial-rate potentiometric determination of uric acid in aqueous and human serum samples, for which, initial-rate reaction progress curves, linear calibration curve, within-day precisions, upper and lower detection limits, and also its analytical recovery were reported.

        Rapid method for the determination of trace fluoride and activation of ion-selective electrode.

        A method for activating ISE is proposed that can allow determination of the fluoride concentration at ng mL(-1) level with good precision and accuracy. Fluoride ISE is activated in 0.5 mol L(-1) HClO4 medium and then fluoride is determined in the same medium. The linear range for the determination of fluoride is between 1.00 x 10(-2)-1.00 x 10(-7) mol L(-1), and the detection limit of the method is 1.0 ng mL(-1). The advantage of this method is that it is free from the use of TISAB solution while being, time-saving and labor-saving. A mechanism study of the activation of FISE in HClO4 medium is explained. The method has been used for the determination of trace fluoride in milk and flour with satisfactory results.

          Incidence of skeletal deformities in endemic fluorosis.

          An investigation was undertaken in three endemic fluorotic areas of Punjab State, India, to assess the prevalence of skeletal deformities. The concentration of fluoride in drinking water varies from 2.3 to 22.5 mg/L. The patients affected with skeletal fluorosis revealed joint pain in both upper and lower limbs, numbing and tingling of the extremities, back pains and knock-knees. Prevalence of skeletal fluorosis was found to be 29% of grade-I, 51% of grade-II and 20% of grade-III and was higher in males (63%) compared with females (37%).
