Two sample preparation methods were modified and optimized for the determination of As, Cu, Fe, and Pb in white sugar using atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS). Analyses were carried out using hydride generation AAS (HG-AAS) for As and flame AAS (FAAS) for Cu, Fe, and Pb. White sugar samples were prepared by dry ashing of the samples with H2SO4 and Mg(NO3)(2). Recoveries for As, Cu, Fe, and Pb were 87.6, 92.8, 95.8, 91.1% respectively, in ashing with H2SO4 They were 95.1, 92.4, 97.4, and 91.1%, respectively, in ashing with Mg(NO3)(2) . 6H(2)O. When small quantities,of spikes were used, 94.7 and 95.3% recoveries of arsenic were found for the procedures applying H2SO4 and Mg(NO3)(2), respectively.

Interference effect of iron on the determination of gold in geological samples using the vapor generation technique and preconcentration in a graphite furnace
Ertaş, Gülay; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2006-04-01)
A vapor generation procedure for the production of volatile species of An was studied using electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry (ETAAS). The interference effects of iron in solution and in the gas phase in a quartz T-tube were studied for the first time in detail. A dual vapor generation system was used for a single heated quartz tube atomizer, so that it was possible to study interferences and classify them regarding their origins. Results show that both gas-phase and liquid-phase interferences a...
Production and characterization of activated carbon from apricot stones
Yağşi, Nezih Ural; Yücel, Hayrettin; Department of Chemical Engineering (2004)
In this study, characterization of activated carbon produced from apricot stones by chemical activation technique using phosphoric acid (H3PO4) as activating agent, at relatively low temperatures (300, 400 and 500oC), was investigated. To produce activated carbon acid impregnated samples were heated; at a heating rate of 20oC/min to the final carbonization temperatures, 300oC, 400oC and 500oC. For each temperature four different carbonization time (90, 120, 180 and 210 min.) were used to produce twelve diff...
Interference studies in slotted silica tube trap technique
Korkmaz, D; Mahmut, M; Helles, R; Ertas, N; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2003-01-01)
Interference effects of KCl, NH4H2PO4, (NH4)(2)CO3, MgCl2, NH4NO3, NaNO3, (NH4)(2)SO4, MgSO4.7H(2)O, CaCl2, Ca(NO3)(2) and NaCl on Bi, Cd, In, Pb and Sb were investigated using the atom trapping technique with a double slotted silica tube. Analyte solutions at concentration levels of 60, 6, 300, 75, 100 ng mL(-1) for Bi, Cd, In, Pb and Sb, respectively, were aspirated into an air-acetylene flame and analyte species were collected on the silica surface. Revolatilization was effected by aspirating IBMK at the...
Controlled release of vancomycin from biodegradable microcapsules
Ozalp, Y; Ozdemir, N; Kocagoz, S; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2001-01-01)
Poly D,L-lactic acid (PLA) and its copolymers with glycolide PLGA 90:10 and 70:30 were polymerized under various conditions to yield polymers in the molecular weight range 12 000-40 000 daltons, as determined by gel permeation chromatography. Vancomycin hydrochloride was the hydrophilic drug of choice for the treatment of methicillin resistant Staphyloccoccal infections. It was microencapsulated in the synthesized polymers using water-oil-water (w/o/w) double emulsion and solvent evaporation. The influence ...
Kinetic analyses of the effects of temperature and light intensity on growth, hydrogenm production and organic acid utilization by rhodobacter capsulatus
Sevinç, Pelin; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biotechnology (2010)
Effects of temperature and light intensity on photofermentative hydrogen production by Rhodobacter capsulatus DSM1710 by use of acetic and lactic acids as substrates were studied. Experiments were conducted at 20, 30 and 38oC incubator temperatures under light intensities in the 1500 – 7000 lux range. pH of the medium and quantity of hydrogen forming together with quantity of biomass, and concentrations of acetic, lactic, formic, butyric and propionic acids in the medium were determined periodically. Growth...
