Arsenic speciation in fish by HPLC-ICP-MS

Eroğlu Özcan, Şefika
Arsenic speciation in fish samples on the market was performed using isocratic elution with cation exchange column high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) detection. Total As concentrations were found by ICP-MS using samples digested by nitric acid-hydrogen peroxide solution using microwave oven digestion; the results were in the range of 1.15-12.6 µg/g. Separation of organic arsenicals, namely arsenobetaine (AB), dimethylarsinic acid (DMA) and monomethylarsonic acid (MA), have been achieved in 12 minutes. Freeze-dried samples were extracted by deionized water with a shaker system; the concentrations of AB and DMA in the extract was then determined using HPLC-ICP-MS. The accuracy of the method for determining AB concentration was confirmed using certified reference material (CRM), DOLT 4 (dog fish liver); for this CRM only preliminary data are available for AB. The arsenic compounds in 6 fish muscle samples were investigated. The predominant arsenic compound found in extracts was AB; the concentrations were in the range of 0.86-12.0 µg/g. DMA concentration was 0.40±0.03 µg/g in one of the samples; in the others it was below the limit of quantation (0.21 µg/g).


Speciation of Arsenic in Fish by High-Performance Liquid Chromatography-Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry
Ozcan, Sefika; BAKIRDERE, Sezgin; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2016-01-01)
Arsenic speciation in fish was performed using isocratic elution with cation exchange column high-performance liquid chromatography and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry detection. The separation of arsenobetaine and dimethylarsinic acid was performed in 12 min. DOLT-4 dogfish liver and NIST RM-50 albacore tuna certified reference materials were used to evaluate the accuracy for the determination of total arsenic in fish. In addition, reference materials were analyzed for arsenobetaine and dimeth...
Crosslinked polyDADMAC gels as highly selective and reusable arsenate binding materials
Pirgalioglu, Saltuk; Ozbelge, Tulay A.; Özbelge, Hilmi Önder; Bicak, Niyazi (2015-02-15)
High porosity cationic hydrogels synthesized via crosslinking co-polymerization of diallyldimethylammonium chloride (DADMAC) with N,N'-tetraallylpiperaziniumdichloride (TAP) showed high affinity towards arsenate anions over a wide pH range within notably short periods. Batch tests indicated that poly(DADMAC) hydrogels removed 99% of the arsenate anions from aqueous solutions at pH 6-10 and exhibited a maximum arsenic removal capacity of 0.12 g arsenic per gram of hydrogel. DADMAC hydrogels performed well at...
Design, synthesis, and characterization of potential self-sorting compounds through differential solvation

DNA achieved its double helix form with the help of hydrophilic and hydrophobic interactions. When the sequence of the DNA is examined, it is seen that the DNA bases are the most hydrophobic part, and therefore; they are located at the innermost part of the double helix to avoid interaction with water. This location also enables them to form hydrogen bonds with the complementary DNA base rather than forming them with water. The next part in the sequence is the sugars which have higher solubility in water co...
Ion implantation in confined, pinching metallic plasmas
Demokan, O; Marji, E (1999-02-15)
A series of preliminary experiments have been carried out to obtain a metallic arc discharge, in the form of an annular cylindrical column, carrying a current in the axial direction. To assert this geometry, a ring-shaped cathode is adopted and an arc formation is triggered by heating the cathode externally. The plasma, initially in the form of a cylindrical shell, is seen to be confined and pinched by its own magnetic field. The resulting, radially inward flux is observed to produce efficient and multidire...
Use of multi-walled carbon nanotubes in matrix solid phase dispersion extraction combined with gas chromatography
Njie, Njaw; Aygün, Rüveyde Sezer; Department of Chemistry (2008)
The use of Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) as solid sorbent in Matrix Solid-Phase Dispersion (MSPD) extraction and preconcentration method was presented to determine some commonly used organophosphorus insecticides/OPIs in honey samples using a Gas Chromatography Flame Ionization Detector (GC-FID). OPIs are poisonous compounds used to kill insects and rodents by affecting their nervous system. The limit of detections obtained after MSPD extraction were 7.0 ng/g for Malathion, Malaoxon and Fenitrothion...
