Chemex (lake sediments) COL (As)

Chemex, lake sediments; colorimetry (arsenic)

General Methodology:

Arsenic was determined colorimetrically, using silver diethyldithiocarbamate. Decomposition was accomplished by heating a 1 gram sample with 20 ml of 6M HCl at 90oC for 1.5 hours.  Colorimetric measurements were made at 520 nm.
