A procedure to determine lead and zinc by anodic stripping voltammetry and copper by cathodic stripping voltammetry in natural river samples was developed and validated. Cu determination involves the adsorption of Cu complexes with 8-hydroxyquinoline (oxine) onto a hanging mercury drop electrode. All samples were studied at natural pH and following optimal(More)
The interaction of dissolved organic matter (DOM) with copper and zinc in a concentrated seawater sample was characterised by pseudopolarography. Measurements performed at increased concentrations of copper(II) ions showed successive saturation of active DOM sites which indicate possible partition of copper between (i) free or labile complexes, (ii) reduced(More)
Different procedures of voltammetric peak intensities determination, as well as various experimental setups were systematically tested on simulated and real experimental data in order to identify critical points in the determination of copper complexation parameters (ligand concentration and conditional stability constant) by anodic stripping voltammetry(More)
A two-step protocol (nano-filtration and reverse osmosis) was applied for natural organic matter (NOM) preconcentration of a seawater sample. Complexing affinities of the so concentrated marine dissolved NOM (DNOM) towards major and trace cations were studied by potentiometric and voltammetric titration techniques. The potentiometric titration experiments(More)
An adaptable automatic trace metal monitoring system (ATMS) was assembled and embedded in a mobile monitoring station belonging to the French Water Agency Artois-Picardie (AEAP) and deployed in the field to measure the concentration of trace metals (electroactive and acid leachable fractions) in natural waters by anodic stripping voltammetry with a hanging(More)
The influence of an adsorbed layer of the natural organic matter (NOM) on voltammetric behaviour of copper on a mercury drop electrode in natural water samples was studied. The adsorption of NOM strongly affects the differential pulse anodic stripping voltammogram (DPASV) of copper, leading to its distortion. Phase sensitive ac voltammetry confirmed that(More)
