Abstract

To date no general atlas of atomic spectral lines which are useful in atomic absorption spectroscopy has been published, although much experimental work has been done in this area. Even the rather numerous books which have been recently published list only a few spectral lines which are used in atomic absorption. Generally speaking, only the most sensitive atomic absorption line is used; however, many more papers are appearing in which the concern is for elements present in concentrations which are considerably greater than trace. This is especially true in the areas of geochemical and biological analyses. Advancements in instrument technology, in stability of hollow cathode discharge lamps, and in lamp intensity have permitted the analysis of major constitutents with much greater precision. It is often convenient to avoid excessive dilution by utilizing lines of less sensitivity. Furthermore, there are a number of elements for which the most sensitive line is in doubt.
