publicado na web em 15/05/2017 DETERMINATION OF SULFUR IN SHAMPOO BY UV-VIS SPECTROPHOTOMETRY: EVALUATION OF SAMPLE PREPARATION METHODS. Dry ashing, dissolution in aqueous medium or wet digestion methods were evaluated for sample preparation of shampoo for the subsequent indirect determination of sulfur by UV-Vis spectrophotometry. Among the sample preparation methods evaluated, microwave-assisted wet digestion using 7 mol L -1 HNO 3 was the most suitable method for this purpose. Accuracy of

Moreover, for comparison of results, S (as SO 4 2-) was also determined by ion chromatography, after microwave-assisted wet digestion using concentrated HNO 3 , and no significant difference was observed between the obtained results (according to the t-test for a 95% confidence level, p = 0.288). Relative standard deviations were always lower than 10% and the limit of detection was 0.007% w/v. Finally, the proposed method was applied for analysis of sixteen shampoos used to many types of hair, from different brands produced in Brazil, and the concentration of S ranged from 0.78 to 2.82% w/v.
