Simultaneous Atomic Absorption Spectrometry for Cadmium and Lead Determination in Wastewater: A Laboratory Exercise
Correia, Paulo R. M.; Oliveira, Pedro V.
Journal of Chemical Education, v81 n8 p1174-1176 Aug 2004
The simultaneous determination of cadmium and lead by multi-element atomic absorption spectrometry with electrochemical atomization is proposed by employing a problem-based approach. The reports indicate that the students assimilated the principles of the simultaneous atomic absorption spectrometry (SIMAAS), the role of the chemical modifier, the procedures to perform trace element analysis, and the advantages of simultaneous techniques.
