Abstract

Summary: 1. A new method of exciting spectra for the purpose of quantitative chemical analysis has been developed and studied. It consists in passing a condensed spark discharge through a flame into which is atomized a solution of the sample to be analyzed. 2. The excitation obtained, though less than that of the ordinary spark, is similar to that which should be expected in a flame of very high temperature, and many lines appear which are absent in ordinary flame spectra. 3. The mutual effects of some elements on each other's emission in the spark-in-flame have been studied, and these have been found small enough to permit of a semi-quantitative analysis of unknown solutions containing several elements, without elaborate calibration experiments.
