A new flow injection method is described for the determination of sulfur dioxide in red and white wines and other beverages. A dual-electrode electrochemical detector eliminates interferences by reduction at an upstream coulometric electrode before reductive detection of sulfur dioxide at the amperometric electrode. The data for free and total sulfur dioxide in wines and other beverages agree well with those obtained by the standard aspiration-oxidation method.
