Absorption Spectroscopy

A method which measures the ability of particles—solutes—in a solution to absorb light over a range of wavelengths.
Mechanism Because each compound absorbs light differently, absorption spectra are compound-specific and can be used to measure solute and solvent concentrations and determine reaction rates.

Present study involves the chemical evaluation of rock salt samples collected from the plugging sites of Himalayan salt (Khewra salt mines and Kalabagh salt mines) for their moisture content, water insoluble matter, calcium, magnesium, sulphate content and trace minerals such as Fe,Cu,Cd,Pb,As,Ag and Zn determined by atomic absorption spectroscopy. Moisture content of Khewra and Kalabagh salt samples ranged from 0.03 wt.
