BI

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Republic of Burundi. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Burundian bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Burundi. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Burundi. Most provinces has their own codes with the prefix "BI." For example, the code for Bururi is ISO 3166-2:BI-BR.

Therefore, [t.sub.d] is the most important factor for the sensitivity of the technique using BiFE, which is in agreement with other works that reported the development of bismuth electrodes [18, 37, 38].

% of bismuth (Figure 5(b) shows peaks attributed to three main doublets: the first one, located at 456.7 and 462.3 eV, is attributed to the Ti-O bonds as in [Ti.sub.2][O.sub.3]; the second one, at 457.9 and 463.9 eV, has a closed binding energy than the one reported by Wang and Ma for the compounds similar to bismuth titanates, so this peaks are attributed to the Ti-Bi-O bonds in the bismuth titanate [16]; finally, the third one, with peaks located at 458.3 and 464.1 eV, could be attributed to the Ti-O bonds in the anatase phase of Ti[O.sub.2].
