[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A new method for the determination of trace beryllium in geological samples by oxygen-air-acetylene flame atomic absorption spectrometry is reported in the present paper. The optimum determination conditions were selected. When suitable amounts of 8-hydroxyquinoline are added, the interference effect from the coexisting elements can be minimized and the sensitivity for the determination of beryllium can be increased. The detection limit (k = 3) is 0.006 microg x mL(-1) for beryllium. The method has been applied to the determination of trace beryllium in geological standard samples, and the results are in good agreement with the certified values with a precision of 4.69% RSD( n = 8).

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Non-ion surface active agent can be separated from its solution of water by heating to its cloud point. A new method for the determination of zinc in mineral samples by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometer after phase separation and extraction making use of its cloud point was studied in this paper. The conditions of phase separation and extraction such as using Triton X-100 as phase separation agent, and octanol to drop the cloud point, and the influence of acidity and the number of times for oscillating were discussed. The detection limit was 0.005 microg x mL(-1). This method has been applied to the determination of zinc in ores with satisfactory results.
