Comparison of mercury determination by electrochemical or UV-photochemical vapor generation with detection by atomic fluorescence
Šandlová, Petra ; Červený, Václav (advisor) ; Nováková, Eliška (referee)
~ 5 ~ Abstract The functionality of the add-on Millennium Merlin Satellite module towards the PSA Millennium Excalibur atomic fluorescence spectrometer for determination of mercury has been proven. At the same time, the ratios of the average signal to the sample standard deviations of the results of repeated measurements of this module were compared with the mercury determination using an atomic absorption spectrometer ContrAA700 with a radiation source with continuous spectrum and high resolution. In model experiments performed on an atomic absorption spectrometer, the experimental conditions of the cold vapor detection above the level of the elemental mercury were optimized. The flow rate of argon and hydrogen, the temperature of the detection cell and the storage bottle and the mercury evaporation time were optimized. It has been shown that the reduction environment in the detection tube reduces the signal. The need to heat the detection tube up to 650 řC has been surprising. The causes of this phenomenon were discussed and confronted with data from the available literature. Subsequently, the mercury signal was monitored unde roptimal conditions found on the AAS, using an atomic fluorescence PSA Millennium Excalibur spectrometer with an additional Millennium Merlin Satellite unit for mercury...
