A well-known analytical method, "discrete nebulization", which is suitable for samples having a limited amount like body fluids, high solid content or salt solutions, and less volatile metals, has been further developed for zinc determination in aerosol samples.


Determination of cadmium in high salt content matrices by flow injection cold vapor atomic absorption spectrometry
Alp, Orkun; Demiroz, Hakan; Ataman, Osman Yavuz; ERTAŞ, Nusret (2012-01-01)
Flow injection cold vapor atomic absorption spectrometry (FI-CVAAS) was used for determination of cadmium in high salt matrices such as dialysis concentrates and textile leach solutions. The parameters such as acidity, concentration of reducing agent, reaction coil length, and carrier gas flow rate were investigated to obtain the best sensitivity. No significant background signal was observed even at high salt concentrations. Under the optimized conditions the limit of detection value (3s(b) m(-1), where s(...
Determination of silver by chemical vapour generation and atomic absoption spectrometry
Öztürk, Çağla Pınar; Ataman, Osman Yavuz; Department of Chemistry (2004)
A method for determination of silver has been developed based on chemical vapour generation atomic absorption spectrometry (CVGAAS). Volatile species of silver in acidified medium were generated by the reduction of sodium tetrahydroborate; these species were sent to a flame-heated quartz tube atomizer (QTA) following isolation by using a gas-liquid separator. Flow injection (FI) was used for sample introduction. Optimization of parameters such as; concentrations of acid and NaBH4 concentration, flow rates o...
Determination of cadmium using slotted quartz tube atom trap atomic absorption spectrometry and metal coatings
Özcan Gurbetçioğlu, G. Pelin; Ataman, Osman Yavuz; Department of Chemistry (2010)
Flame atomic absorption spectroscopy (FAAS) is a common technique for detecting metals and metalloids in environmental, biological and metallurgical samples. Although it is a rather old technique, it is still very reliable, simple to use and inexpensive. The technique can be used to determine the concentration of over 70 different metals in a solution. However, it has detection limits at mg/L levels. Some atom trapping methods have been developed to reach the detection limits of ng/mL levels. Slotted quartz...
Determination of volatile organic compounds in different microenvironments by multibed adsorption and short-path thermal desorption followed by gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric analysis
Oznur, Kuntasal; Deniz, Karman; Daniel, Wang; TUNCEL, SEMRA; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2005-12-16)
A multiphase assurance approach was developed for the accurate and precise determination of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in different microenvironments. This approach includes (i) development of a method including adsorption of VOCs onto a multisorbent media followed by short-path thermal desorption (SPTD) pre-concentration and gas chromatography (GC) coupled to a mass spectrometry (MS) quantification, (ii) validation of the sampling and analytical method and (iii) validation of the data using a multid...
Determination of Arsenobetaine in Fish Tissue by Species Specific Isotope Dilution LC-LTQ-Orbitrap-MS and Standard Addition LC-ICPMS
Yang, Lu; Ding, Jianfu; Maxwell, Paulette; McCooeye, Margaret; Windust, Anthony; Ouerdane, Laurent; Bakirdere, Sezgin; Willie, Scott; Mester, Zoltan (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-05-01)
An accurate and precise method for the determination of arsenobetaine (AsB, (CH(3))(3)(+)AsCH(2)COO(-)) in fish samples using exact matching species specific isotope dilution (ID) liquid chromatography LTQ:Orbitrap mass spectrometry (LC-LTQ-Orbitrap-MS) and standard addition LC inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LC-ICPMS) is described. Samples were extracted by sonication for 30 min with high purity deionized water. An in-house synthesized (13)C enriched AsB spike was used for species specific ID...
