The determination of bismuth requires sufficiently sensitive procedures for detection at the mu g L-1 level or lower. W-coil was used for on-line trapping of volatile bismuth species using HGAAS (hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry); atom trapping using a W-coil consists of three steps. Initially BiH3 gas is formed by hydride generation procedure. The analyte species in vapor form are transported through the W-coil trap held at 289 degrees C where trapping takes place. Following the preconcentration step, the W-coil is heated to 1348 degrees C; analyte species are released and transported to flame-heated quartz atom cell where the atomic signal is formed. In our study, interferences have been investigated in detail during Bi determination by hydride generation, both with and without trap in the same HGAAS system. Interferent/analyte (mass/mass) ratio was kept at 1, 10 and 100. Experiments were designed for carrier solutions having 1.0 M HNO3. Interferents such as Fe, Mn, Zn, Ni, Cu, As, Se. Cd, Pb, Au, Na, Mg, Ca, chloride, sulfate and phosphate were examined. The calibration plot for an 8.0 ml. sampling volume was linear between 0.10 mu g L-1 and 10.0 mu g L-1 of Bi. The detection limit (3 s/m) was 25 ng L-1. The enhancement factor for the characteristic concentration (C-o) was found to be 21 when compared with the regular system without trap, by using peak height values. The validation of the procedure was performed by the analysis of the certified water reference material and the result was found to be in good agreement with the certified values at the 95% confidence level.

The analytical performance of a miniature quartz trap coupled with electrochemical hydride generator for antimony determination is described. A portion of the inlet arm of the conventional quartz tube atomizer was used as an integrated trap medium for on-line preconcentration of electrochemically generated hydrides. This configuration minimizes transfer lines and connections. A thin-layer of electrochemical flow through cell was constructed. Lead and platinum foils were employed as cathode and anode materia...

A direct insertion probe pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique was used to perform a systematic thermal characterization of conducting polypyrrole doped with p-toluene sulfonic acid. The effect of dopant concentration on thermal stability and degradation products was investigated using undoped and dedoped polypyrrole samples. The data indicate that polymerization of pyrrole in the absence of dopant produces an aromatic structure, which transforms into the quinoid form at high dopant concentrations. Reductio...
Vapor generation and atom traps: Atomic absorption spectrometry at the ng/L level
Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2008-08-01)
Atom-trapping atomic absorption spectrometry is a technique that allows detection at the ng/L level for several analytes such as As, Se, Sb, Pb, Bi. Cd, In, TI, Te, Sn and Hg. The principle involves generation of volatile species, usually hydrides, trapping these species on the surface of an atom trap held at an optimized temperature and, finally, revolatilizing the analyte species by rapid heating of the trap and transporting them in a carrier gas to a heated quartz tube, as commonly used with hydride gene...

In this work, direct insertion probe pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique was applied to investigate the thermal and the structural characteristics of electrochemically prepared HCl and HNO3-doped polyaniline (PANI) films. It has been determined that the thermal degradation of both samples showed three main thermal degradation stages. The first stage around 50-60 degrees C was associated with evolution of solvent and low-molecular-weight species adsorbed on the polymer, the second stage just above 150 degr...

An electrically heated tungsten coil was used as a trap in the determination of antimony. The technique consists of three steps. Initially, SbH(3) is formed by hydride generation procedure; then the analyte species in vapor form are transported to W-coil trap heated at 370 degrees C. Following the preconcentration step, the trap is heated to 895 degrees C; analyte species are revolatilized and transported to the flame-heated quartz atom cell where atornization and the formation of signal take place. The exp...
