Is this 1:1 HNO3 for preservation of metals

Yes, this intended to meet the preservation requirements for metals analysis.

I\'m looking for a 2 ml 1:1 Sulfuric acid vials, do you carry anything to that nature?

For sulfuric acid, the next level down we have is 3 mL of 35% solution. We don\'t carry anything in 1:1.

How much Nitric Acid is in this vial? Also how much is in the HCl vial for 1000 ml?

This item contains 3 mL 44% nitric acid. Item PA190008-02-04 contains 3 mL concentrated hydrochloric acid.

these are pre prepared bottles for water collection ?

This particular item is actually one of the preservatives that would be used after sample collection. The precleaned sampling containers can be found here - http://www.envexp.com/products/7-General_Lab_Supplies/ESS-Field_Testing_and_Sampling/ESS-Environmental_Sampling_Containers

What is the volume per bottle and quality of the acid? COA?

The volume and concentration of acid does vary based on the size of the bottle you are preserving. I am e-mailing you a spreadsheet with this information on it. All reagents used in the preservation ampoules are ACS grade. No C of A comes with this product.

can we get empty containers of these ampules to buy?

We do not package these ourselves but distribute them for our chemical supplier. We don\'t have the empty containers to sell. However you may be able to use the preservative and rinse out the container for reuse in other applications.
