Abstract: Flow injection hydride generation, coupled with DC plasma atomic emission spectrometry was used for the determination of trace lead concentrations in calcium carbonate matrixes. The use of ferricyanide combined with sodium tetrahydroborate(III) enable the prodn. of plumbane from acid solution The plumbane is separated in a new gas-liq. separator and delivered to the plasma for determination Detection limits for the technique are 0.7 ng mL-1. Precision of measurements at the 20 ng mL-1 level was 1.6% relative standard deviation. In a study of interferences, Fe(II), Fe(III), Cd(II), Co(II), Mn(II), Ni(II) and Zn(II) do not interfere. The presence of copper(II) at 1 µg mL-1 reduced the signal from lead by 50%. Samples can be analyzed at a rate >60 h-1.
