A sample solution containing less than 0.5 mug of As was adjusted to pH 2. As in the solution was collected on activated carbon (AC) as molybdoarsenate. The AC was directly introduced as an AC suspension into a graphite furnace atomizer, and the concentration of As was determined by atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS). This method is relatively free from interference caused by coexisting ions. The calibration curve was linear up to 0.1 mg l(-1), and limit of detection of As was 0.004 mg l(-1… CONTINUE READING
