Composition of rainwater in the central region of Sao Paulo City



Composition of rainwater in the central region of Sao Paulo City



Quimica Nova 27(6): 855-861



This study investigated the chemical composition of rainwater samples collected from March 2002 to February 2003 in downtown Sao Paulo city (Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie), Brazil. Potentiometric and conductimetric measurements were used to evaluate the and the total ionic content. Major anions and cations were determined by ion chromatography with conductivity detection. The rainwater was acidic with a mean pH of 4.99.
