A double-chamber, graphite electrode, suitable for d.c. arc determination of halogens by means of the alkaline earth halide bands, is described. An upper chamber holds the alkaline earth compound and an interconnected, lower chamber holds the halogen compound. This arrangement assures that there will be an abundance of alkaline earths in the arc by the time the halogen is volatilized from the lower chamber, and thereby promotes maximum emission of the alkaline earth halide bands. ?? 1954.
