Ultra sensitive methods of trace metal analysis.
Department of Chemistry, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio 1976; :1-102
Flameless atomic absorption (AA) spectroscopy was explored as it was applied to the determination of trace metals in biological systems. A high conversion rate electronic integrator suitable for a variety of chemistry experiments was designed and fabricated. A variety of flameless AA experiments was undertaken using human serum, human white blood cells, human ceruloplasmin, human red blood cells, human lung and bovine liver. An in depth analysis was undertaken of the concentration of copper (7440508) in red blood cells. Other efforts involved the determination of lead (7439921) and cadmium (7440439) in freeze dried samples of normal human lung tissue. A microwave induced plasma was coupled to tantalum strip vaporization assembly for analysis of samples with complex matrices. These studies of microwave induced plasma were then extended to simultaneous multielement analysis. Finally, the potential of an oscillating mirror rapid scanning spectrometer as a detector for simultaneous multielement emission spectrometry was explored.
