Bondar Clegg (stream sediment) DCP (Ba) – 2.5% boric acid

Bondar Clegg, stream sediment; direct current plasma emission spectroscopy (Barium) – 2.5% boric acid

General Methodology:

Barium was determined as follows: 2 mL of concentrated HCl were added to a 0.2 g sample in a pressure tube and allowed to stand 20 minutes to drive off sulphides. Then, 1 mL HNO3, 1 mL HClO4 and 2 mL HF are added and the pressure tube capped and placed in a hot water bath for one hour to allow digestion. The tube was cooled, uncapped and filled with a 2.5% boric acid solution. After shaking, the solution was transferred to a 100 mL volumetric flask and diluted by a factor of 10 with a 10% cesium chloride solution. Barium was determined by DCP spectroscopy. Detection limit = 40 ppm.
