The Use of an Air-Natural Gas Flame in Atomic Absorption.
Melucci, Robert C.
Journal of Chemical Education, v60 n3 p238 Mar 1983
Points out that excellent results are obtained using an air-natural gas flame in atomic absorption experiments rather than using an air-acetylene flame. Good results are obtained for alkali metals, copper, cadmium, and zinc but not for the alkaline earths since they form refractory oxides. (Author/JN)
