Abstract: A solid chelating material, 1-(2-pyridylazo)-2-naphthol (PAN) supported on naphthalene provides a rapid and highly selective means of preconcentrating palladium from a large aqueous volume (-500 mL) of its synthetic samples. Palladium is quantitatively retained on this adsorbent in the pH range 3.1-5.0 when its aqueous solution is passed on it at a flow rate of 1-8 mL/min. the solid mass consisting of the adsorbent along with the metal complex is dissolved out of the column with 5 mL of dimethylformamide (DMF) and the metal is determined by first derivative spectrophotometry. The calibration curve is linear over the concentration range 0.3-200 µg of palladium in 5 mL of the final DMF solution by measuring the distance dA/dλ between λ1(680) and λ2(650). Eight replicate determinations of a sample solution containing 20 µg of palladium gave a mean intensity (peak to peak signal between λ1 and λ2)0.138 with a relative standard deviation of 1.5%. The sensitivity of the method is 0.0318 [(dA/dλ)/(µg/mL)]found from the slope of the calibration curve and detection limit is 0.04 µg/mL (signal to noise ratio = 2). Various parameters such as pH effect, flow rate, volume of aqueous phase and the interference of anions and cations on the estimation of palladium have been evaluated and the developed method is found to be highly selective and sensitive and applied to the determination of trace amounts of palladium in various complex samples corresponding to standard samples.
