Determination of inorganic arsenic species As(III) and As(V) by high performance liquid chromatography with hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry detection

Central European Journal of Chemistry (Impact Factor: 1.17). 01/2004; 2(1):82-90. DOI: 10.2478/BF02476185

ABSTRACT The paper presents the principles and advantages of a technique combining high performance liquid chromatography and hydride
generation atomic absorption spectrometry (HPLC-HGAAS) applied to speciation analysis of inorganic species of arsenic As(III)
and As(V) in ground water samples. With separation of the arsenic species on an ion-exchange column in the chromatographic
system and their detection by the hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry, the separation of the analytical signals
of the arsenic species was excellent at the limits of determination of 1.5 ng/ml As(III) and 2.2 ng/ml As(V) and RSD of 4.3%
and 7.8% for the concentration of 25 ng/ml. The hyphenated technique has been applied for determination of arsenic in polluted
ground water in the course of the study on migration of micropollutants. For total arsenic concentration two independent methods:
HGICP-OES and HGAAS were used for comparison of results of real samples analysis.

    ABSTRACT: Main approaches to the trace element analysis of biological fluids and problems appearing in this case are considered. The specific character of these approaches is illustrated by the examples of the analysis of real samples for various trace elements. The advantage of methods for the direct determination of trace elements in these samples is demonstrated.
