This work describes the use of simultaneous multielement flame atomic absorption spectrometry for the determination of cadmium, lead, and nickel in burned and unburned Venezuelan crude oil (5 ml volumes) in controlled laboratory experiments. The simultaneous detection limits were 0.010 mug ml(-1) (Cd), 0.04 mug ml(-1) (Pb), and 0.40 mug ml(-1) (Ni) with precision's of these elements at concentrations of 10x above these detections limits, and in the crude oil, of 1-2%.
