Environmental trace analysis : techniques and applications by John R. Dean

By John R. Dean

"This ebook covers all facets of environmental hint research from sampling via to guidance of the pattern to the analytical recommendations used to quantify the extent of hint metals or natural compounds. The e-book is split into parts: pattern practise for inorganic research and pattern instruction for natural research. this enables the reader to target key points on the topic of the training of samples for Read more...

Sample text

Do the procedures use spiked samples to assess recoveries? [Practical point: samples are spiked with a known concentration 30 ENVIRONMENTAL TRACE ANALYSIS – – – – of the analyte under investigation and their recoveries noted; this allows an estimate of analyte matrix effects to be made]. Do the procedures include analysis of reagent blanks? e. 5% of the sample load]. Do the procedures use standards to calibrate instruments? g. minimum of 5. Daily verification of the calibration plot should be done using one or more standards within the linear working range].

Published 2014 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. 8 ENVIRONMENTAL TRACE ANALYSIS Important factors to remember when recording information in your notebook:  Record data correctly and legibly (even you may not be able to read your own writing later).  Write in ink (and not pencil which fades with age).  Include the date and title of individual experiments and/or areas of investigation.  Briefly outline the purpose of the experiment, that is what you hope to know by the end.  Identify and record the hazards and risks associated with the chemicals/equipment being used [Practical point: this may be on a separate sheet of paper which should be stapled in to the notebook].

2 Calibration graphs: (a) a direct calibration graph and (b) a standard additions method calibration graph. g. mg/mL or ppm); m is the slope of the graph; and c is the intercept on the x-axis. 4) Alternatively, the method of standard additions can be used; this approach is useful if the sample is known to contain a potentially interfering matrix. In this approach a known (and fixed) volume of the sample is added to each of the calibration solutions [Practical point: the volume of sample to be added to the calibration solutions needs to be estimated; this can be done by first running the unknown sample and interpolating from the direct plot].
