Novel Method for Micro Determination of Lead in Water Samples

Author(s): Anil K. Shrivastava and Harshal S. Khaladkar

A simple, rapid, precise and reliable analytical method for the micro determination of lead in water samples has been developed. The method incorporates co-precipitation of lead on zirconium hydroxide followed by its determination employing atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS) using 283.3 nm wavelength. The reliability of the method was established by analyses of water samples. The newly developed method has been successfully validated with spiked river, bore well and rain water samples. The method is superior to currently used methods for the determination of lead in water samples.
