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 experimental parameters were optimized both for trap and no-trap studies. The most important experimental parameters are concentrations of HCI and NaBH4 solutions. H2 and At gas flow rates. and collection and revolatilization temperatures of W-coil. Accuracy was tested using a certified reference material, waste water EU-L-1. Limit of detection for the system is 16 ng 1- 1 using a sample of 36 ml collected in 4.0 min. Enhancement factor in sensitivity was 17.

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...
Determination of bismuth using on-line preconcentration by trapping on resistively heated W coil and hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry
Cankur, O; Ertas, N; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2002-01-01)
A novel analytical system was developed to trap and preconcentrate bismuth from the vapour phase stream. Bismuthine formed by sodium tetrahydroborate reduction was trapped on a tungsten coil previously heated to 270 degreesC. The analyte species were re-volatilised by increasing the coil temperature to 1200 degreesC and then transported to an externally heated silica T-tube by using a mixture of argon and hydrogen as the carrier gas. The base width of the transient signal was less than 0.5 s. The reproducib...

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 preconcent...

Tokmakçı, Tolga; Öztürk, Abdullah; Jongee, Park; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2013)
A titanium dioxide powder co-doped with boron and zirconium was prepared by mechanical ball milling. Photocatalytic performance of the powder was evaluated by degradation of methylene blue (MB) solution under UV illumination. XRD patterns were refined by Rietveld analysis method to obtain accurate lattice parameters and position of the atoms in the crystal structure of TiO2. XRD analysis indicated that the B and/or Zr doped TiO2 powders composed of anatase and did not exhibit any additional phase. Rietveld ...
Determination of germanium at trace levels by chloride generation atomic absorption spectrometry
Kaya, Murat; Volkan, Mürvet; Department of Chemistry (2004)
Trace amounts of germanium is determined by flame atomic absorption spectrometry by utilizing the vaporization of germanium tetrachloride. Using a continuous flow reactor, sample solution is mixed with concentrated hydrochloric acid and heated to 80ð C to form volatile germanium tetrachloride which can be subsequently sent to N2O-C2H2 flame AAS. The necessary conditions for the volatilization of germanium tetrachloride are investigated in detail and the applicability of the method for the determination of t...
