Tl(I) and Tl(III) are preconcentrated simultaneously from aqueous solutions by colloid precipitate flotation using two collectors: hydrated iron(III) oxide (Fe(2)O(3).xH(2)O) and iron(III) tetramethylenedithiocarbamate (Fe(TMDTC)(3)). After the coprecipitation step and the addition of foaming agents, Tl(I) and Tl(III) were separated from the water by a(More)
An accurate, fast, and simple method for determination of thallium in environmental water samples with Zeeman electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry (ZETAAS) by previous flotation preconcentration is given. The possibility of using cobalt(III) hexamethylenedithiocarbamate as a colloidal precipitate collector for simultaneous flotation separation of(More)
A method of determination of Co, Cu, Pb and Ni in nanogram quantities from aragonite is presented. Flotation and extraction of Co, Cu, Pb and Ni is suggested as methods for elimination matrix interferences of calcium. The method of flotation is performed by iron(III) hexamethylenedithiocarbamate, Fe(HMDTC)(3), as a colloid precipitate collector. The(More)
Colloid flotation of zinc from fresh water with a combination of two collectors, hydrated iron(III) oxide (Fe(2)O(3).xH(2)O) and iron(III) tetramethylenedithiocarbamate (Fe(TMDTC)(3)), permits rapid separation of the precipitate before its atomic absorption spectrometric (AAS) analysis. All important parameters necessary for the successful flotation like(More)
Co(III) hexamethylenedithiocarbamate has been applied as a collector in colloid flotation preconcentration of Cd from water prior to electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry (ETAAS). All experimental parameters necessary for successful flotation have been studied and optimized. The ETAAS results were compared with those obtained by inductive coupled(More)
A fast method for separation, preconcentration and determination of cadmium in drinking (source, well, tap) and water for irrigation is described. Iron(III) hexamethylenedithiocarbamate, Fe(HMDTC)3, has the role of colloid precipitate flotation collector. The determination of cadmium in final water solutions preconcentrated by flotation can be performed by(More)
A fast method for separation of Cd, Cu, Fe, Ni, Pb, Zn, and Tl from seawater before their determination by atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) is described. The ability of Co(III) hexamethylenedithiocarbamate, Co(HMDTC)3, as a flotation collector for metals from seawater was investigated. The influence of pH of the media, as one of the crucial parameters(More)
Two new methods for the determination of iron by atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) are proposed for drinking water. The determination was made after flotation concentration of Fe by using of two new flotation collectors: lead(II) heptyldithiocarbamate, Pb(HpDTC)2 and cobalt(III) heptyldithiocarbamate Co(HpDTC)3. All important parameters for the two(More)
A fast flotation method for determination of cadmium and lead in aquatic systems by two chromium(III) collectors is described. The first collector is a colloid precipitate of hydrated chromium(III) oxide, Cr2O3 x xH2O, while the second is a bulk chromium(III) pentamethylenedithiocarbamate, Cr(PMDTC)3. Cadmium and lead present in water are incorporated into(More)
