Abstract: Solutions of Al(III) in H2SO4 (pH 3 to 3.5) were injected into a carrier solution of Fe(III) and tartrate (pH 3.5 to 6.0) and Al was determined by AAS by measuring the enhancement of the Fe signal in a fuel-rich air - acetylene flame. The effect depends on the ratio of air to acetylene, and on the geometries of the burner and the optical system. The coefficient of variation (n = 11) for 0.2 to 4 µg mL-1 of Al was 1.2% and the sampling frequency was 150 h-1 for an injected volume of 54 µL. The limits of detection were 6 and 10 ng of Al for 10 and 25 µg mL-1 of Fe, respectively. There was no interference from Br-, I-, F-, Pb(II) and Mg(II). The method was applied to the determination of Al in low-silica magnesite chrome (BCS 396), high-purity magnesite (BCS 389) and feldspar (BAS 29f) to give results in good agreement with the certified values. Interference from foreign ions is discussed.
