A simple spectrophotometric method has been developed for determination of silver in special glasses. The method involves decomposition of glass with hydrofluoric acid and nitric acid, formation of primary Ag(I)- dithizonate in 0.05 M nitric acid and 1 x 10(-5) M dithizone, extraction of silver dithizonate on polyurethane foam, elution with acetone and measurement of absorbance at 500 nm of the colour formed by its secondary complex in ammoniacal acetone medium. The method obeys Beer's law from 0.1-mu-g Ag/ml to 6.0-mu-g Ag/ml. The molar absorptivity has been found to be 3.45 x 10(4)1 mole-1 cm-1 at 500 nm.
