In the second phase, the resulted colored solution is photometrically analyzed at a wavelength corresponding to followed species with the aim of establishing the optical absorbance of the solution and absorbance value is correlated with concentration through the Beer Lambert Law (Matter, 1995, Skoog, 1996, Robinson, 2005).
