A Preconcentration And Determination Of Trace Amounts Of Heavy Metals In Water Samples Using Membrane Disk By Na-PDTP And Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometry

Author(s): Ali Moghimi, Mohammad Amiri

A fast and simple method for preconcentration of Ni2+, Cd2+, Pb2+, Zn2+,Cu2+ and Co2+ from natural water samples was developed. The metal ions were complexed with Natriumdiethyldithiocarbaminat (Na- PDTP) then adsorbed onto octadecyl silica membrane disk, recoverd and determined by FAAS. Extraction efficiency, influence of sample volume and eluent flow rates, pH, amount of Na-PDTP, nature and amount of eluent for elution of metal ions from membrane disk, break through volume and limit of detection have been evaluated. The effect of foreign ions on the percent recovery of heavy metal ions have also been studied. The limit of detection of the proposed method for Ni2+, Cd2+, Pb2+, Zn2+, Cu2+ and Co2+was found to be 2.03, 0.47, 3.13, 0.44, 1.24 and 2.05ng.mL-1, respectively. The proposed(DDTC) method has been successfully applied to the recovery and determination of heavy metal ions in different water samples.
