ABSTRACT
A simple, sensitive, reliable and flexible flow injection spectrophotometric method is proposed for on-line preconcentration and determination of trace amounts of zinc in water. At the presence of Tween-80 in pH 9.3 buffer solutions, the shade of color of Zn (II)-PAN complex is in a linear relation to the zinc amount at the point of the maximum absorption peak of 560 nm. The optimal experimental conditions, including reaction conditions and preconcentration conditions, had been obtained. The linear range of the proposed method was between 2.0 and 360 mug L(-1) and the detection limit was 0.42 mug L(-1). The relative standard deviation was 3.55% and 2.14% for 5.0 mug L(-1) and 50 mug L(-1) of zinc standard solution (n = 8). The method had been successfully applied to zinc determination in water samples and the analytical results were satisfactory.

fig5: Effect of preconcentration time on the peak height.

Mentions: Preconcentrationtime can affect analysis sensitivity and sampling frequency. Preconcentrationtime from 2 minutes to 13 minutes was tested. The results in Figure 5 showedthat the preconcentration time was longer, the zinc concentration of thepreconcentration column would be higher which causes the analysis sensitivity to be higher but the sampling frequency to belower. Taken a comprehensive consideration of analysis sensitivity andsampling frequency, preconcentration time of 5 minutes was decided for furtherwork.
