"Determination Of Manganese By Flow Injection Analysis Based On Its Catalytic Effect On The Oxidative Coupling Reaction Of 3-methyl-2-benzothiazolinone Hydrazone With NN-dimethylaniline"
Anal. Sci. 1991 Volume 7, Issue 1 Pages 97-101

Abstract: Sample solution was injected into a carrier stream of aqueous 1.2% H2O2 and reacted at 50°C in a reaction coil (3 m) with 0.1 M citrate - 0.2 M Tris buffer solution (pH 11), 30 mM NN-dimethylaniline - 3 mM 3-methyl-2-benzothiazolinone hydrazone - 3 mM 1,10-phenanthroline. The mixture was cooled to 25°C in a 1-m reaction coil and the absorbance was measured at 590 nm. The calibration graph was rectilinear for 4 to 30 ng mL-1 of Mn and the coefficient of variation were 1.9 to 4.2%. The method was applied in the analysis of standard reference materials, the results obtained compared well with certified values.

"Flavin Mononucleotide Chemiluminescence For Determination Of Traces Of Copper(II) By Continuous-flow And Flow Injection Methods"
Bull. Chem. Soc. Jpn. 1985 Volume 58, Issue 4 Pages 1137-1142

Abstract: Flow injection analysis, with chemiluminescence detection, is used to determine traces of copper(II) by means of the flavin mononucleotide-hydrogen peroxide-phosphate buffer system. This permits the determination of copper(II) more selectively than any other chemiluminescence system with a detection limit of 0.03 ng (20 pL sample injection) or 0.06 ng mL-1 (continuous sample flow). The linear range is 3 orders of magnitude, the sampling rate is 120 h-1, and the relative standard deviation is 3.1% for 1 ng Cu(II) (n=10). Iron(II) and chromium(III and VI), the strongest enhancer after copper(II), provide signals 2-3% of that for copper(II). Effect of surfactant micelles on the signal for copper is also discussed. The method is successfully applied to real samples.
