1 Scope of application
This Standard specifies the flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry for the determination of copper, zinc, lead, nickel and chromium in soil and sediment. This Standard applies to the determination of copper, zinc, lead, nickel and chromium in soil and sediment.
When the sample volume is 0.2 g and the constant volume after digestion is 25 ml, the method detection limits for copper, zinc, lead, nickel and chromium are 1 mg/kg, 1 mg/kg, 10 mg/kg, 3 mg/kg and 4 mg/kg, respectively, and the lower limits of determination are 4 mg/kg, 4 mg/kg, 40 mg/kg, 12 mg/kg and 16 mg/kg, respectively. 2 Normative references

3 Principle of the method
After the soil and sediment are digested by acid, the copper, zinc, lead, nickel and chromium in the sample are atomized in the air-acetylene flame, and the ground state atoms have selective absorption of the characteristic spectral lines of copper, zinc, lead, nickel and chromium respectively; the absorption intensity is proportional to the concentration of copper, zinc, lead, nickel and chromium within a certain range. 4 Interference and elimination
4.1 Iron below 1 000 mg/L does not interfere with the determination of zinc. 4.2 Potassium, sodium, magnesium, iron and aluminum below 2 000 mg/L, as well as calcium below 1 000 mg/L, do not interfere with the determination of lead. 4.3 When using 232.0 nm as the absorption line to measure nickel, it is influenced by the nickel three-line spectrum of similar wavelength, and the selection of 0.2 nm spectral passband can reduce the influence.
4.4 Under the conditions of this Standard, when using a reducing flame, the common elements coexisting in soil and sediment do not interfere with the determination of chromium.
