In the development of rapid methods for silicate rock analysis, a simpler and faster means was needed for the determination of carbon dioxide than the conventional "train" procedures. With the method presented here, which involves measurement of the volume of carbon dioxide evolved, the time required for a determination is about 5 minutes per sample. It provides a saving of 30 to 40 minutes for each determination without significant loss of accuracy.
