Applicable to products having a S compounds content, expressed as sulphate, of equal to or more than 5 mg/kg. Bases of progressive neutralization, with evolution of carbon dioxide, by adding slowly a mixture of hydriodic acid and hypophosphoruos acid. Reduction of the compounds to hydrogen sulphide by heating. Distilation of the hydrogen sulfide, entrainment in a flow of oxygen-free nitrogen and absorption in a mixture of acetone and sodium hydroxide solution.
