Simple solvent extraction technique for elimination of matrix interferences in the determination of methylmercury in environmental and biological samples by ethylation gas chromatography cold vapor atomic fluorescence spectrometry.
Further improvements in the limit of quantification can be realized by processing larger sample volumes (up to 2.5 mL has been tested) or by subjecting the entire 10-mL aqueous extract to ethylation, rather than 3 mL, as routinely used.
Simultaneous determination of mercury speciation in biological materials by GC/CVAFS after ethylation and room-temperature collection.
Existing methods require complex sample pretreatment consisting of distillation and ethylation before the GC separation step.
We selected a limited number of fish muscle samples for MMHg determination, using Bloom's procedure (12) and incorporating several improvements by using a dual circuit on a semi-automatic system: MMHg was determined by cold vapor atomic fluorescence spectrometry (Brooks Rand Ltd., Seattle, WA, USA), after KOH/methanol digestion at 70 [degrees] C followed by aqueous phase ethylation (Na[BEt.sub.4]), isothermally controlled gas chromatography at 95 [degrees] C and 800 [degrees] C electrothermal atomization.
