An automatic column changing system was developed for preconcentration and measurement of rare earth elements (REEs) in natural water samples, where syringe driven chelating columns (SDCCs) were applied to the hybrid (off-line operation and on-line operation) solid phase extraction of REEs. The sample loading was carried out off-line prior to the measurement. After that, the SDCCs were set into the column holder of the automatic column changing system and REEs were on-line eluted and measured… CONTINUE READING
