Analysis of solid samples by graphite furnace atomic emission spectrometry

Lectures Theory and Instrumentation


The possibility of determining a range of analytes in solid samples using a single set of optimised ‘multi-element’ instrumental parameters for a graphite furnace atomic emission spectrometry (GFAES) system was investigated. Accurate results for silver, manganese, nickel, lead and vanadium in solid reference materials of biological origin were obtained using peak area evaluation and calibration against standard solution curves. The versatility of the constant-temperature atomiser enabled lead and silver in metallurgical samples to be determined as well, although quantification against standard steel materials was necessary in the case of silver to obtain acceptable results.
