Share 'Alternative for Nessler's Reagent to test for ammonia?'
I'd rather not use mercury compounds in the classroom anymore, especially ones that I have to make! Does anyone know of an alternative to test for ammonia that I previously used Nessler's Reagent for? The lab is testing the influence of acidification on ammonification using B. cereus and P. aeruginosa grown in 4% peptone broth at pH 7.0, 5.5, and 3.5.
