Using polyacrylamide (PAM) to reduce soil erosion in irrigated land has increased rapidly in recent
years. A simple and reliable method to measure the PAM concentration in waters containing dissolved
organic matter (DOM) is of great importance in assessing the fate and efficiency of PAM application. In
this research, an analytical method to determine the PAM concentration of waters with correction for
DOM interference was developed and tested. The method is based on a combination of determining
the total concentration of amide groups by the N-bromination method (NBM) and determining the DOM
content spectrophotometrically. The total concentration of amide groups of both PAM and DOM was
determined by NBM at 570 nm. The DOM moiety, which is proportional to DOM concentration, was
determined by spectrophotometry using a UV 254-nm wavelength. The actual PAM concentration of a
water sample (soil extract containing PAM in this study) was obtained from NBM readings subtracted by
the interferential DOM contribution using a correction curve. Analysis of PAM in two soil-water samples
showed that the recoveries ranged from 94 to 100.3% for the 2 mg/L PAM sample and from 98.4 to
101.4% for the 10 mg/L PAM sample with various DOM concentrations. The coefficients of variation
were <6% in all cases.
