|Title:||Solid phase extraction and spectrophotometric determination of gold|
|IPC Code:||Int. Cl.8 G01N21/00; G01N30/00|
|Abstract:||A sensitive, selective and rapid method for the determination of gold based on the rapid reaction of gold with 5-(p-aminobenzylidene)-thiorhodanine (ABTR) and the solid phase extraction of the colored chelate has been developed. In 0.05-0.5 mol L-1 hydrochloric acid and emulsifier-OP medium, ABTR reacts with gold to form a red chelate of molar ratio 1:3 (gold to ABTR). This chelate has been preconcentrated by solid phase extraction with polymer-based C18 cartridge and eluted from cartridge with dimethyl formamide to attain an enrichment factor of 100. In DMF medium, the molar absorptivity of the chelate is 1.23 × 105 L. mol-1. cm-1 at 550 nm. Beer's law is obeyed in the range of 0.01-3μg mL-1 of gold. The relative standard deviation for eleven replicate samples of 0.5 μg L-1 gold is 2.1 8%. The detection limit, based on three times of standard deviation, is 0.02μg L-1 in the original sample. This method has been applied to the determination of gold in water and ore with good results.|
