Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometric Determination of Trace Cadmium after Preconcentration by Extracting Its 8-Hydroxyquinoline Complex into Molten Benzophenone
Hee-Seon Choi* , Young-Sang Kim
A sensitive method for the determination of trace cadmium after the preconcentration by extracting its 8-hydroxyquinoline complex into a molten benzophenone was developed. Several experimental conditions such as the pH of solution, the amounts of 8-hydroxyquinoline and benzophenone, stirring time, and standing time were optimized. Trace cadmium in 100 mL water sample was chelated with 2.5 mL of 0.001 M 8-hydroxyquinoline at pH 8.0. After 0.07 g benzophenone was added, the solution was heated to about 70 ℃ and stirred vigorously for 1 minute to dissolve the complex quantitatively in a molten benzophenone, and stood for 30 minutes to reproduce the microcrystalline benzophenone. The benzophenone containing Cd-8-hydroxyquinoline complex was filtered and dissolved in acetone. Cadmium was determined by a flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry. The interfering effects of diverse concomitant ions were investigated and eliminated. This method could be applied to natural water samples and the recovery of more than 90% was obtained in the real samples.
