Modification of Diffusive Gradient in Thin Films Technique for Characterization of Environmental Systems
Gregušová, Michaela ; Sommer, Lumír (referee) ; Janoš, Pavel (referee) ; Dočekal, Bohumil (advisor)
Diffusive gradient in thin film technique (DGT) represents a relatively new approach for in situ determinations of labile metal-species in aquatic systems. The DGT device passively accumulates labile species from the solution while deployed in situ, and therefore contamination problems associated with conventional collection and filtration procedures are eliminated. This study deals with a possible modification of DGT technique. The key of using DGT technique for speciation analysis of metals is to find out suitable binding phase and diffusion layer. The new resin gel based on Spheron Oxin (5 sulphophenyl-azo-8-hydroxyquinoline) ion exchanger with a higher selectivity to trace metals than Chelex 100 could potentially provide more information on metals speciation in aquatic systems. The performance of this new binding phase was tested for the determination of Cd, Cu, Ni, Pb and U under laboratory conditions. The hydrogel layer based on poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) was synthesized and tested as a new diffusion gel for application in DGT technique.
Characterization of atmospheric particulate matter by diffusive gradient in thin film (DGT) technique
Gregušová, Michaela ; Dočekal, Bohumil
In this study, characteristics of heavy metal contamination in road dust collected from urban area with heavy traffic in Brno, Czech Republic was investigated. The DGT probes were exposed in aqueous suspensions of particulate matter for different time periods to monitor responses of the sample matter. The road dust and DGT sorption gels were decomposed by microwave assisted extraction and analyzed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry for estimation of trace metals contents. The results revealed that the traffic appears to be responsible for the high levels of Cu, Pb, Ni and Sb and also that DGT technique, as alternative to conventional extraction procedures is a useful tool for characterization of metals mobility.
New modification of diffusive gradient in thin film technique (DGT) for determination of metals in sediments
Gregušová, Michaela ; Dočekal, Bohumil
The diffusive gradient in thin film (DGT) technique has been used for measuring fluxes and concentrations of labile metal species in waters, soils and sediments. The DGT probes offer a number of advantages over other conventional monitoring techniques as grab sampling, by reducing the errors of sample storage and transportation. Spatially resolved DGT responses were indicative of local redistribution of uranium in naturally uranium poor and rich sediments.
Characterization of a new 8-hydroxyquinoline modifed resin gel for DGT technique
Gregušová, Michaela ; Dočekal, Bohumil
This study deals with a new resin gel based on Spheron-Oxin® ion exchanger with anchored specific groups of 8-hydroxyquinoline for DGT technique. The performance of this new binding phase was tested for determination of Cd, Cu, Ni, Pb and U under laboratory conditions. The new binding phase with a higher selectivity to race metal species than Chelex 100 could potentially provide more information on metals speciation in aquatic systems.
