A simple and rapid method for the determination of trace amount of iro
n(III) by stopped-flow photochemical method has been developed based o
n the catalysis of iron(III) on the photochemical decoloration of meth
ylene blue. The linear range of this method was in the range of 0.003-
0.28 mu g/mL of iron(III). It is satisfactory to apply this method in
the analysis of iron(III) in tap water and honey samples with RSD 1.80
% and 1.03%, respectively.
