Energy-dispersive x-ray spectrometric methods have been developed for the determination of chlorine in asbestos (chrysotile) fibers. Chlorine, which is a minor constituent, is determined by a standard addition method from the ground fiber and by a standardless method in six different fibers. The lower limit of detection for a qualitative analysis and the lower limit of determination for a quantitative analysis of chlorine in the asbestos matrix are 40 ppm and 120 ppm, respectively. The water-soluble and acid-soluble chlorine have also been determined by ion-exchange chromatography and by a colorimetric method. The agreement of the three different methods is very good in all cases.
