A highly sensitive spectrofluorimetric method is proposed for the determination of trace amount of ascorbic acid using a new indication. The method is based on the inhibition of ascorbic acid on the oxidation of pyronine Y (PRY) by nitrite. The detection limit for ascorbic acid is 0.012 microg ml(-1), the linear range of the determination is 0.02-0.36 microg ml(-1). Analytical parameters, such as reagent concentration, pH, reaction temperature and time, were optimized. The relative standard deviations of eleven replication determinations of 0.12 and 0.24 microg ml(-1) ascorbic acid were 1.4 and 0.72%, respectively. This method has been used to determine ascorbic acid in pharmaceuticals, vegetables, fruits and soft drink with satisfactory results.
