Chemex (lake sediment) AAS (Zn, Cu, Pb, Ni, Co, Ag, Mn, Fe, Cd; air acetylene flame) – 6ml, held for 2hrs

Chemex,  lake sediment; atomic absorption spectroscopy (Zn, Cu, Pb, Ni, Co, Ag, Mn, Fe, Cd; air acetylene) – 6ml of mixture, held at 90C for 2 hours

General Methodology:

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 spectroscopy using an air-acetylene flame.  Background corrections were made for Pb, Ni, Co and Ag, Cd.
