Abstract: Eriochrome cyanine R (ECR) has been applied as immobilized reagent for the direct determination of aluminum by diffuse reflection spectroscopy. Sorption ability of aluminum species depends on the kind of solid support and increases in the following sequence: anionite AV-17 < silica gel < chromaton-N- super < cellulose. Chromaticity characteristics of the aluminum sorbates, namely, color Lightness (L), chromaticity coordinates (A, B), saturation (S), hue (T), brightness (Y), whiteness (W), yellowness (G), and the total color difference (Delta E), indicate better sensitivity and precision than the diffuse reflection coefficient. The experimental parameters (optical characteristics, acidity of aqueous solution, shaking time, volume of aqueous solution, etc.) affecting the sorption of aluminum species have been optimized. The detection limit is 0.004 mg/l for the aluminum complex immobilized on cellulose. The precision and accuracy of the proposed method was evaluated with real samples, e.g. surface water, salt CH3COONa.
