Abstract
A sensitive and interference-free automated method for the simultaneous speciation analysis of methylated species of mercury, tin and lead, and also inorganic mercury in mater, using purge-and-trap injection-gas chromatography-atomic emission spectrometry,,vas developed, The ionic species are volatilized from the sample after ethylation, using sodium tetraethylborate, in acetate buffer medium of pH 5 and preconcentrated on a capillary cryogenic trap. Desorption is effected by linear heating of the trap, followed by separation of the analytes by capillary gas chromatography and selective simultaneous detection by microwave-induced plasma atomic emission spectrometry. Detection limits of 0.15, 0.20 and 0.60 ng l(-1) for methylated tin, lead and mercury species, respectively, and 2 ng l(-1) for inorganic mercury can be obtained, on the basis of a 10 mi sample volume, Examples of results for the analysis of river- and soil run-off water samples are given.
