Chemex AAS (As; hydride evolution) decomp: 6 ml - 4 HCL 1 HNO3
Chemex, atomic absorption spectroscopy - hydride evolution (arsenic) decomp: 6 ml - 4 HCL 1 HNO3
A 1 gram sample was reacted with 6 ml of a mixture of 4M HCL and M HNO3 in a test-tube overnight at room temperature. After the overnight digestion, the test-tube was immersed in a hot water bath at room temperature and brought up to 90°C and held at this temperature for 2 hours with periodic shaking. The sample solution was then diluted to 20 ml with metal free water and mixed.
The element was determined by atomic absorption using a hydride evolution method wherein the hydride (AsH3 or SbH3) is evolved and passed through a heated quartz tube in the light path of an atomic absorption spectrophotometer. The method is described by Aslin (1976).
