A method is described for direct electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometric (ETAAS) determination of cadmium in untreated samples of wine. Pyrolytic graphite tubes and graphite tubes with standard L'vov pyrolytic platforms were tested as atomizers. The detection limit achieved was 0.08 microg L(-1) Cd in wine. The relative standard deviation for the(More)
Populations of medicinal plants growing on serpentines and their respective soils were analyzed for Fe, Ni, Mn, Cr, Co, Cd, Cu, Zn, and Pb using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry. Aqua regia extraction and 0.43 M acetic acid extraction were used for the quantification of pseudototal and bioavailable fractions, respectively, of elements(More)
The copper(II)-histidine complex obtained following dialysis of human plasma with histidine was investigated using various types of extraction systems and ion exchange resins. According to the results obtained, the Cu(II)-histidine complex formed under the dialysis conditions has one positive charge. Preconcentration of copper from the dialysis solution was(More)
An analytical method using silica supported silver nanoparticles as a novel sorbent for the enrichment and determination of inorganic mercury (iHg) in surface water samples has been developed. Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were synthesized by a completely green procedure and were deposited onto the amine functionalized surface of silica submicrospheres(More)
The purpose of this article is to evaluate the toxicological effect of wastewater emitted from " Radomir Metal Industries". It has been registered that the range of 50% mortality (LC50) of great water flea (Daphnia magna St.) is limited between 75% and 80% effluent. The data mortality rate-effluent dilution for Pseudorasbora parva well correlated with(More)
