New Atomic Science Findings Reported from Erciyes University

June 13, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Investigators publish new report on Science. According to news reporting originating in Kayseri, Turkey, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A membrane filtration procedure based on the adsorption of 2-(5-bromo-2-pyridylazo)-5-(diethylamino)phenol (5-Br-PADAP) chelates of Pb(II), Co(II), and Ni(II) on a cellulose acetate membrane filter has been investigated. Determination of the analyte elements was performed by flame atomic absorption spectrometry."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Erciyes University, "The effects of some parameters including pH, amount of 5-Br-PADAP, etc., on the recovery of the analyte elements were investigated, including influences of some matrix ions. The preconcentration factor found was 15. The detection limits for lead, cobalt, and nickel were 15.6 mu g L-1, 8.9 mu g L-1, and 19.5 mu g L-1, respectively. The validation of the procedure was verified using the addition-recovery test for real samples and analyzing a certified reference material."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The procedure was successfully applied to the determination of analyte ions in environmental samples, including natural water samples."
