A single-reagent method for the speciation of chromium in natural waters by flame atomic absorption spectrometry based on vesicular liquid coacervate extraction (Journal article)

Tsogas, G. Z./ Giokas, D. L./ Vlessidis, A. G./ Evmridis, N. P.

The concept of liquid coacervate extraction (LCE) is deployed to accomplish metal speciation after appropriate derivatization of the target metallic species. The method involves the partitioning of the hydrophobic metal chelates, produced from the reaction of Cr with APDC, in the vesicular aggregates formed from an anionic surfactant with alkaline earth metals and a cosurfactant, which are separated from the bulk aqueous phase. Under the established experimental conditions, the method offers high reproducibility., very low detection limits and recoveries in the range of 95 - 104%. Moreover, the method affords high tolerance for EDTA, which is used as a masking agent in order to avoid interferences from co-extracted metals. Validation of the outlined method was performed by analysing a certified reference material (BCR 544) yielding recoveries higher than 94% for both Cr oxidation states. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V.
