A study was undertaken, within the framework of a 3 years national project, to assess the content of 13 elements in airborne particulate matter collected in representative zones of the metropolitan area of Buenos Aires. The sampling strategy followed consisted in collecting simultaneously 67 samples of PM10 particulate matter in 9 sampling sites covering an(More)
Trace elements in small sample volumes of saliva were determined by coupling a high efficiency direct injection nebulizer to inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry and employing quantification by isotope dilution. Aliquots of 0.4 ml of human saliva were mixed with 0.1 ml of concentrated nitric acid and diluted to 2 ml with water. Sample solutions were(More)
Um sistema de análise química em fluxo com dois percursos analíticos foi desenvolvido para determinação de amônio em extratos de solo por condutometria. A amônia era gerada em linha em um meio alcalino, permeava através de uma membrana hidrofóbica (TPFE), sendo coletada em fluxo de água desionizada que transportava o analito para a cela de condutividade. O(More)
Insertion of an electrochemical cell in a flow injection system to evaluate the on-line reduction of ionic species is presented. The cell comprised Pt electrodes installed in two sections separated by a Nafion membrane. The sample was injected into an acidic carrier stream and passed through the cathode compartment of the electrolytic chamber where the(More)
BACKGROUND Frailty is a highly prevalent condition in old age leading to vulnerability and greater risk of adverse health outcomes and disability. Detecting and tackling frailty at an early stage can prevent disability. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a multifactorial intervention program to modify frailty parameters, muscle(More)
A procedure for simultaneous separation/preconcentration of copper, zinc, cadmium, and nickel in water samples, based on cloud point extraction (CPE) as a prior step to their determination by inductively coupled plasma optic emission spectrometry (ICP-OES), has been developed. The analytes reacted with 4-(2-pyridylazo)-resorcinol (PAR) at pH 5 to form(More)
A home-made system hyphenating capillary electrophoresis with an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (CE-ICP-MS) for cadmium speciation of protein-binding and free cadmium ions in solution is presented. The CE-ICP-MS interface consisted of an acrylic block with an internal volume ca. 20 microL in which a platinum electrode, a capillary column, and(More)
An analytical procedure for multiple standard additions of arsenic species using sequential injection analysis (SIA) is proposed for their quantification in seafood extracts. SIA presented flexibility for generating multiple specie standards at the ng mL(-1) concentration level by adding different volumes of As(III), As(V), monomethylarsonic (MMA) and(More)
A extração no ponto nuvem (CPE) foi realizada em duas etapas seqüenciais para a determinação de elementos traço em soro humano, sangue animal e dieta alimentar por espectrometria de massas com fonte de plasma indutivamente acoplado. A primeira CPE foi realizada adicionando dietil-ditiofosfato, Triton X-114 seguida de aquecimento a 40 °C, centrifugação e(More)
