ABSTRACT We have developed a new method of the separation, preconcentration, and determination of Cr(III), Cu(II), Cd(II) and Pb(II) ion in water samples. It is based on the use of activated carbon that was modified with rhodamine 6G to yield a solid-phase sorbent. The experimental conditions for adsorption were optimized. Cr(III), Cu(II), Cd(II) and Pb(II) can be quantitatively adsorbed at pH 4, and adsorbed Cr(III), Cu(II), Cd(II) and Pb(II) can be completely eluted with 1M hydrochloric acid. The maximum adsorption capacity is 37.8, 47.8, 56.5 and 41.7 mg g(-1) for Cr(III), Cu(II), Cd(II) and Pb(II). Cr(III), Cu(II), Cd(II) and Pb(II) ions were then determined by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry. The detection limit (3σ) is under 0.35 ng mL(-1), and the relative standard deviation is lower than 3.5% (n=11). Common potentially interfering ions do not interfere with the adsorption and determination of the analytes. The method displays selectivity, sensitivity and reproducibility, and was successfully applied to the determination of biological and water samples.

    ABSTRACT: A new ion-imprinted carboxymethyl chitosan-functionalized silica gel sorbent was synthesized by surface imprinting technique using Cd(II) as the template, carboxymethyl chitosan (CMCS) as the functional monomer and glutaraldehyde as the cross-linking agent for the selective adsorption of Cd(II) from aqueous solution. The optimum batch experimental conditions (pH, amount of adsorbent, contact time) and column experimental conditions (concentration and volume of elution solution) were evaluated. The maximum static adsorption capacity of the ion-imprinted sorbent for Cd(II) was 20.7mg/g. The enrichment factor of Cd(II)-imprinted polymer for Cd(II) was 257. The relative selectivity factor values of Cd(II)/Pb(II), Cd(II)/Co(II) were 5.3 and 1.5, respectively. The recoveries of water samples were about 98.0-104.0% (R.S.D.≤0.8). The proposed method was successfully applied to determination of Cd(II) in water samples with satisfactory.

    ABSTRACT: In this study we report the production of a monoclonal antibody (Mab) specific for Cr(III)-chelate and the development of a competitive immunoassay for detection of Cr(III) in water samples. In the assay, the complete antigen (Cr(III)-ITCBE-BSA) was used as coating antigen, and Cr(III)-ITCBE as competitor competes with coating antigen to bind with Mab. Using this approach, the spiked water samples with Cr(III) were detected. The linear range of the detection was 0.7-12.4ngmL(-1). The limit of the detection (LOD) was 0.51ngmL(-1). The spiked results were also confirmed by ICP-MS, which showed a good correlation (R(2)=0.997) between the two methods. The results indicated that the developed assay was reliable and suitable for the detection of Cr(III) in water samples.
