A glance at achievements in analytical atomic spectrometry in Central and Eastern Europe
Guest Editors, Pawel Pohl and Jiri Dedina, highlight the papers in the Analytical Atomic Spectrometry in Central and Eastern Europe web themed issue.
The present state of coupling of dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction with
atomic absorption spectrometry
The article offers an overview of the present state of coupling of dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction with atomic spectrometry.
Bulgarian analytical atomic spectroscopists in the new millennium—integrated in the European research area
Selected contributions on AAS, AFS, ICP techniques and hyphenated methods in the new millennium co-authored by Bulgarian analysts are presented.
Studies on archaeological gold items found in Romanian territory using X-Ray-based analytical
This paper presents investigations on museum objects to supplement previous work on archaeological and alluvial gold by X-ray based spectrometry.
Spectroscopic evaluation of a low power atmospheric pressure mixed argon–helium microwave induced plasma combined with the chemical generation of volatile species for the optical emission spectrometric determination of arsenic, antimony and mercury
Spectroscopic and analytical characteristics of a mixed Ar–He microwave induced plasma (MIP) were examined for its usefulness in the determination of As, Sb and Hg using chemical vapor generation (CVG) of these elements.
Characterization and mutual comparison of new electrolytic cell designs for
hydride generation- atomic absorption spectrometry with a quartz tube atomizer using Se as a model analyte and 75Se as a radioactive indicator
Electrolytic cells of three construction types were designed and their potential for hydride generation AAS was tested.
Selective generation of substituted
arsines-cryotrapping- atomic absorption spectrometry for arsenic speciation analysis in N-methylglucamine antimonate
Hydride generation-cryotrapping-gas chromatography-atomic absorption spectrometry (HG-CT-AAS) was applied for arsenic speciation analysis in an injectable drug, N-methylglucamine antimonate.
A novel analytical system with a capacitively coupled plasma microtorch and a gold filament microcollector for the determination of total Hg in
water by cold vapour atomic emission spectrometry
A miniaturized system with capacitively coupled plasma for Hg determination (ng L−1) using CV preconcentration on a gold microcollector is presented.
Unmodified manganese ferrite
nanoparticles as a new sorbent for solid-phase extraction of trace metal–APDC complexes followed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry analysis
A simultaneous solid-phase extraction of metal–APDC complexes onto unmodified magnetic MnFe2O4 nanoparticles was developed and applied for ICP-MS analysis of human urine.
In situ collection of volatile silver species in a new modular
quartz tube atomizer for atomic absorption spectrometry
A novel modular design of the quartz tube atomizer (QTA) is employed for collection of volatile Ag species directly in the optical tube (i.e. in situ). Collection efficiency under optimized conditions is excellent, reaching nearly 100%.
