A simple spectrophotometric method for the estimation of iron from Bisphenol was developed. The proposed method is based on a coupled two-step redox and complexation reaction. In the first step, iron present in bisphenol in higher oxidation state Fe (III) is converted into Fe (II) ion by reduction with hydroxylamine hydrochloride. Subsequently, Fe (II) is complexed with Ferrozine reagent.
