2] coprecipitation and solubilization, most samples (Table 1) were loaded onto preconditioned TRU cartridges (10 mL, 4 M HCl; Eichrom) to adhere Po, U, and Th (Horwitz et al.
After the coprecipitation was completed, the precipitate slurry was filtrated and washed with anhydrous ethanol until pH~7 and dried for 10h at 100[degrees]C.
The scientists formed cyclodextrin inclusion complexes of alpha-tocopherol and quercetin using a coprecipitation technique.
A preconcentration method for chromium has been studied based on the coprecipitation of its ethylxanthate complex onto naphthalene (Gopikrishna et al.
This complex sediment mixture allows a wide range of mechanisms of metal-sediment interactions, such as incorporation into crystal lattices of clays, adsorption or ion-exchange in Fe-Mn oxyhydroxides and humic substances, coprecipitation with Fe-Mn oxyhydroxides and carbonates, and organometallic bonding with humic substances (Tessier 1992).
For example, in coprecipitation concentration factors can reach 5000-40 000, and a number of metal hydroxides have been widely used and applied to the preconcentration of trace metal ions from different media [1, 4-8].
Phosphate sorption can occur through either solid phase adsorption and complexation reactions, or precipitation and coprecipitation reactions.

Transformation of human bronchial epithelial cells by infection with SV40 or adenovirus-12 SV40 hybrid virus, or transfection via strontium phosphate coprecipitation with a plasmid containing SV40 early region genes.
However, due to insufficient sensitivity and matrix effects, direct determination of metal ions at low levels in environmental samples by FAAS is limited [11-13], Therefore, separation and preconcentration techniques such as precipitation and coprecipitation, cloud point extraction, ion-exchange, dispersive liquid-liquid micro-extraction, and solid-phase extraction (SPE) are needed to determine metal ions [14].
