Simultaneous kinetic spectrophotometric determination of Cu(II), Co(II) and Ni(II) using partial least squares (PLS) regression

Central European Journal of Chemistry (Impact Factor: 1.33). 09/2009; 7(3):375-381. DOI: 10.2478/s11532-009-0030-2


A partial least squares (PLS-1) calibration model based on kinetic—spectrophotometric measurement, for the simultaneous determination
of Cu(II), Ni(II) and Co(II) ions is described. The method was based on the difference in the rate of the reaction between
Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) ions with 1-(2-pyridylazo)2-naphthol in a pH 5.8 buffer solution and in micellar media at 25°C.
The absorption kinetic profiles of the solutions were monitored by measuring the absorbance at 570 nm at 2 s intervals during
the time range of 0–10 min after initiation of the reaction. The experimental calibration matrix for the partial least squares
(PLS-1) model was designed with 30 samples. The cross-validation method was used for selecting the number of factors. The
results showed that simultaneous determination could be performed in the range 0.1-2 μg mL−1 for each cation. The proposed method was successfully applied to the simultaneous determination of Cu(II), Ni(II) and Co(II)
ions in water and in synthetic alloy samples.

    ABSTRACT: The present paper describes two new, simple, rapid, selective and sensitive kinetic spectrophotometric methods for Co(II) and Sn(II) determination in solution at room temperature, based on their effect on phenyl fluorone (PF) oxidation by hydrogen peroxide in ammonia buffer. The new method was elaborated for nano amounts of Co(II) determination, based on its catalytic effect on the oxidation of PF by H2O2 in the presence of citric acid (CA) as an activator. Also, the new method for micro amounts of Sn(II) determination was developed based on its inhibitory effect upon the same reaction. Comparison of the results showed that the activated catalytic reaction has better sensitivity than the inhibitory one. Methods were validated by the analysis of chemical substances and results were confirmed by examining the same samples by the AAS method.

    ABSTRACT: Industrial processes require materials with controlled properties, such as metals and alloys, which are obtained from a combination of metals and other species. The steel production in Brazil in 2013, e.g., was over 34 million tons. This importance reflects in standardized methods of analysis, such as ABNT and ASTM. Some of these methods are classical methods (gravimetric and volumetric) or instrumental and their choice depend on the analyte, the amount of sample, other interferences and cost. This text is a brief overview of recommended methods and those who bring innovations to metal analysis.

    ABSTRACT: A simple kinetic spectrophotometric method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of cobalt(II) and tin(II) without any preliminary separation based on the different rates of their oxidation reaction with Fe(III) and 1,10-phenantroline in micellar medium. The reduced product of the reaction, Fe(II), forms a color complex with 1,10-phenanthroline and makes a visible spectrophotometric signal for indirect monitoring of Sn(II) and Co(II) concentrations. This method is based on the calculation of the variation of ratio kinetic profiles. At first, the ratio kinetic profile is obtained by dividing the kinetic profile of the sample by that of an interferent and then the signal at the first time of ratio kinetic profile is subtracted from the signals at all times to obtain the variation of ratio kinetic profiles. The proposed method is suitable for the analysis of binary mixtures with completely overlapping absorption spectra that shows a difference in their rate constants in a given reaction. The proposed method was successfully employed for the analysis of various water samples and canned products (pineapple juice).
