Determination of copper in airborne particulate matter using slurry sampling and chemical vapor generation atomic absorption spectrometry.

The present paper describes the development of a method for the determination of copper in airborne particulate matter using slurry sampling and chemical vapor generation atomic absorption spectrometry (CVG AAS). Chemometric tools were employed to characterize the influence of several factors on the generation of volatile copper species. First, a two-level… CONTINUE READING
