The determination of magnesium in silicates by atomic absorption spectroscopy

The determination of magnesium in silicates by atomic absorption spectroscopy
The determination of magnesium in silicates by atomic absorption spectroscopy using a hot flame is discussed. Interference by aluminium observed, in the air-acetylene flame is overcome by using the hotter nitrous oxide-acetylene flame. There is some evidence to suggest that the alkali metals interfere in this determination but this is not confirmed in the results obtained on standard rock samples. Values for magnesium are given for some new rock standards recently distributed by the U.S. Geological Survey.

Abstract

The determination of magnesium in silicates by atomic absorption spectroscopy using a hot flame is discussed. Interference by aluminium observed, in the air-acetylene flame is overcome by using the hotter nitrous oxide-acetylene flame. There is some evidence to suggest that the alkali metals interfere in this determination but this is not confirmed in the results obtained on standard rock samples. Values for magnesium are given for some new rock standards recently distributed by the U.S. Geological Survey.
