Technical Note


A method based on selective sequential dissolutions is proposed to determine total vanadium(V) in particulate matter of emissions and working areas at concentrations 1,000 times lower than the threshold limit of 0.05 mg m−3. Separation and preconcentration of vanadium(V) has been achieved by solid-phase extraction on Chelex 100 resin. Possible influence of the matrix has been investigated for two standard reference materials (SRMs), NIST SRM 1648 and BCR-038, before and after spiking, with vanadium(V) recovery in the range 97–103%.
