Abstract

Sequential multi-element determination using a flame atomizer is an interesting alternative to atomic absorption spectrometry. Fast sequential flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FS-FAAS) is a sequential multi-element technique that keeps the advantages of flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS), being an adequate tool to determine the concentration of several elements in the mg/L range. The development of thermospray flame furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (TS-FF-AAS) in 2000 provided a significant detectability improvement of volatile elements (Ag, As, Au, Bi, Cd, Cu, Hg, In, K, Pb, Pd, Rb, Sb, Se, Te, Tl e Zn)in relation to FAAS, resulting in limits of detection (LOD)in the microgram per liter range. However, TS-FF-AAS is considered a monoelementar technique. Therefore, this study proposes the sequential multi-element determination of Cd, Cu, Pb and Zn by TS-FF-AAS in biological and food slurry samples. Limits of detection of these elements, memory effects, peristaltic pump flow, performance of tube atomizers, effects of concomitants, and the use of the reference element technique to solve interference problems will be evaluated. Certified reference materials will be used to verify precision and accuracy of the proposed methods. (AU)
