Direct analysis of solid samples by atomic absorption spectrometry, following preconcentration of trace elements from seawater with 8-hydroxyquinoline

8-Hydroxyquinoline (8-HOQ) was used for the preconcentration of Cd, Cu, Mn, Pb and Zn from seawater prior to their determination by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry using an inner miniature cup for solid sampling technique. The metal ions in seawater were precipitated quantitatively in the pH range 7–8.5 with 8-HOQ alone. The precipitate thus formed was directly analysed by an atomic absorption spectrometer equipped with a specially deviced graphite furnace and miniature cup. The present method was confirmed to be highly reliable for analysis of seawater. Detection limits (3δb) for Cd(II), Cu(II), Mn(II), Pb(II) and Zn(II) are 1.4, 10, 5, 10, and 6 ng l−1, respectively, for the analysis of a 400-ml portion of seawater samples. Corresponding precision of 6–14% is typical for determination 5-fold above the detection limits.
