A method for the simultaneous determination of zinc and cadmium with the chelating ligand 9-(1',4',7',10'-Tetraazacyclododecyl)methylanthracene using spectrofluorimetry is described. Effect of experimental variables on fluorescence intensities and on the spectral behavior of the metal-ligand in several types of surfactants have been studied, The range of application is between 2.0 and 35 mu g/L for both zinc and cadmium. The method has been applied to the determination of zinc and cadmium in real leachate samples and synthetic mixtures.
