Potassium in the blood is precipitated as potassium cobalt nitrite and when dissolved in sodium thiosulphate it liberates cobalt. The amount of cobalt liberated is equivalent to the amount of potassium present in the sample and this cobalt concentration is determined spectrophotometrically by choline chloride and potassium ferricyanide which impart green colour to the sample (Snell & Snell, 1959).
