Simple Mercury Analysis of Complex Samples: Soil, Oil, Foodstuff, and More
In this webinar, Lumex Instruments experts George Debus and Nikolai Ivanov discuss the advantages of atomic absorption spectroscopy with Zeeman background correction (ZAAS) for the analysis of mercury in complex samples.
Determination of mercury in complex samples is always a challenge for the laboratory analysis. This especially applies to soil, crude oil, wastewater, ores, foodstuff, and biological samples. As a rule, these objects are a complex mixture of various organic and inorganic compounds. The conventional AA and AF analysis techniques must involve time consuming stages of sample preparation and mercury accumulation on a sorbent. It significantly increases the analysis time, labour cost, and error probability.
In this webinar, experts Lumex Instruments George Debus and Nikolai Ivanov to discuss the advantages of atomic absorption spectroscopy with Zeeman background correction (ZAAS) for the analysis of mercury in a variety of samples. The ZAAS technique allows fast and selective direct mercury determination in any complex liquid or solid by means of pyrolysis/burning with real time detection.
Neither sample preparation nor mercury accumulation needed.
An advanced option of thermal scanning provides additional information about forms of mercury and matrix.
KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
- Examples of determination of mercury in soil, crude oil, naphtha, wastewater, foodstuff, coal, sorbent traps, cosmetics and more.
- Improved selectivity and sensitivity analysis using ZAAS
- Compliance with ASTM, ISO, and US EPA standards
- Determination of mercury species in samples
