Element concentrations of a millionth (ppm) or one billionth part (ppb) of the sample can be detected. The transfer line and cavity temperatures of the AED were set at 340°C. 1G. The capillary was inserted into a graphite tube (1.2 mm inner diameter and 5.0 mm outer diameter) and protruded from the graphite tube about 2.5 mm. The potential interfering substances were added separately (3%, volume ratio), methanol, ethanol, formic acid and acetic acid, and 50-fold K, Ca, Na, and Mg, to the single-element working standard solutions at 5 mg L−1 with pH = 1.0 HNO3. 2. Ionic and atomic lines are superimposed on the emission background. The Shimadzu ICPE-9820 is a simultaneous instrument that splits light in two dimensions, measuring all wavelengths at once on a CCD chip. For example, a compact device has been developed for detection of mercury in water by using a smartphone for collecting and analyzing the colorimetric data [97]. In addition, the insertion of the quartz capillary into the graphite tube excludes the reservoir of ELCAD. The sensor system also automatically calculates the concentration of mercury using a customized application. The experimental arrangement for AFS is illustrated in Fig. Lower energy consumption (<50 W) and higher excitation efficiency can be realized by point discharge of the needle-like Pt. The power consumption is below 50 W. and the RSD ranged from 0.9822 to 0.9981 and from 0.26% to 6.83%, respectively. As we all know, the emission intensity was dependent on the solution pH in ELCAD [6] and AC-EALD [17, 18]. In atomic Emission the sample is atomized and the analyte atoms are excited to higher energy levels. Transmission electron microscopy: provides information from within the volume of material such as dislocation images, small angle boundary distribution, and vacancy clusters. As shown in Figure 5, the emission intensity of K is increased with flow rate from 2.5 to 5.5 mL min−1, but the emission intensities of Ca, Na, and Mg are increased from 2.5 to 3.0 mL min−1 and then declined after further increasing the flow rate from 3.0 to 5.5 mL min−1. The advantages and disadvantages of using nanosensors for surface water, groundwater, and industrial wastewater stream purification have been explored in this chapter [90]. This result shows that the SiC addition is effective in improving the creep property of Si3N4 ceramics. HNO3, HCl, and H2SO4 were of superior reagent grade and were supplied by Sinopharm Chemical Reagent Co., Ltd. (Ningbo, China). The correlation coefficient between the failure time and Ca content was about 0.7. It is considered as one of the most promising alternative miniaturized excitation sources with potential advantages of commercial and analytical success of the plasma sources (i.e., ICP), because it is more compact and is a portable instrument with lower energy consumption (<75 W) and needs no special sample introduction system like a spray chamber and a nebulizer to transport the analytes to the analytical zone [2, 3, 7]. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a simple, convenient, and portable analytical technique. The three most common atomic spectroscopy techniques . It suggested that HNO3 exhibits higher emission intensities for K, Ca, Na, and Mg. Fig. The advantages compared to ICP-MS are the higher tolerance to salt content in the samples and the possibility of monitoring nonmetallic elements, like C, S, P, Cl, which are difficult to detect with quadrupole ICP-MS. The optimized analytical conditions of LCGD-AES were pH = 1 with HNO3 as electrolyte, 650 V discharge voltage, and 3 mL min−1 solution flow rate. The statistical results between LCGD-AES and IC were listed in Table 4. 1.26C) is an emission method based on an external light beam to excite analyte atoms radiatively. In AFS, the excitation from the ground state to the upper state (Fig. Once again, a higher population of atoms in the atom cell produces a greater fluorescence signal. LEP-AES is an ultracompact elemental analysis method, in which the electroconductive sample solution is put into a microfluidic channel whose center is made narrower (∼100 μm in width). Scale of Operation : The scale of operations for atomic emission is ideal for the direct analysis of trace and ultratrace analytes in … AAS has been used for the detection of numerous metal ions, including aluminum (III). As the size of is close to , the change of emission intensity is not obvious (ionic radii of , , and are 165, 181, and 244 pm, resp.). • Atomic emission spectroscopy (AES or OES) uses quantitative measurement of the optical emission from excited atoms to determine analyte concentration. Presented at 28.03.2011, Faculty of Agriculture, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, by Vasiliy Rosen, M.Sc. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. The excitation source system consists of two parts: a pointed Pt wire (diameter: 0.5 mm) called the anode was sealed into a conical quartz tube and positioned 1.0 mm above the top of quartz to form a needle-like Pt tip discharge that results in a higher excitation efficiency, while the sample solution was introduced through the quartz capillary and flowed over the top of the capillary into the grooves on the graphite tube, which in turn was served as the liquid cathode. Only in this way will the salt mines enjoy more potential applications. As shown in Figure 7, the emission intensities were decreased from pH 0.8 to 1.6. The usual answer lies in the need for enhanced separation of closely eluting compounds – compounds with similar retention factor, k. Historically, chromatography has searched for better means to resolve compounds; as methods improve, we can separate compounds of closer chemical nature. Many salt mines are exploited for raw materials used in industry, agriculture, and medicine [1]. This coefficient was statistically calculated from the results plotted the creep failure time and creep strain after 5 h for impurity contents in the Si3N4-SiC composites with different SiC particles of 0 to 30%. The recoveries of K, Ca, Na, and Mg by LCGD-AES ranged from 84.05% to 115.95%. Working standard solutions were prepared by appropriate dilution from the corresponding stock solutions and then adjusted to pH = 1.0 with HNO3. In fact, (1) the SIALON balls and the Si3N4 pot that were used in this experiment contained Al element, since AlN or MgAl2O4 was added to them as a sintering additive, and (2) the Al content calculated from the weight loss of the SIALON balls and the Si3N4 pot before and after the mixing was similar to that in the sintered body. Molecular band spectra of N2 ranging from 315 to 406 nm and ascribed to the systems are observed in emission spectra because the discharge is carried out in ambient air. There are two main types of atomizers: discrete and continuous. 1000 mg L−1 stock standards of K, Ca, Na, and Mg were obtained from the National Research Center for Certified Reference Materials (Beijing, China). Sign up here as a reviewer to help fast-track new submissions. This means that there is no emission of heat energy, as is the case when a flame or glow wire glows. Compared with ICP-AES, LCGD-AES has some advantages, such as low power consumption, no gas requirement, low cost in setup, and easy operation and design. Figure 3 shows the correlation coefficients between the impurity contents detected in the Si3N4-SiC composites and creep failure time, creep strain. Besides, the detectability, discharge stability, and emission efficiency are also improved [3, 7]. Table 1. In this work, in order to further evaluate the feasibility of the method, simultaneous determination of K, Ca, Na, and Mg in salt mines samples was carried out by LCGD-AES. 1.26) [12]. This will depend upon the carrier fluid (gas, liquid) that is used for each mode, and the mechanism by which solutes are retained on each dimension. The miniaturized LCGD seems particularly well suited to rapid and high-sensitivity determination of K, Ca, Na, and Mg in salt mines samples. The results showed that all calibration curves have a good linear relationship. The instrumentation of atomic emission spectroscopy is the same as that of atomic absorption, but without the presence of a radiation source. As shown in Figure 2(a), the bands in the wavelength from 262.0 to 309.0 nm are attributed to the emission of OH () [32, 33]. All results suggested that the developed portable analytical instrument can be used for on-site and real-time monitoring of metal elements in field with further improvement. Novel approaches have been proposed to develop on-field colorimetric devices for metal ion detection based on functionalized gold nanoparticles that can also be applied for aluminum. Under the fixed wavelength at 766.5 nm, the emission intensity of K I was taken as a function of time to test the stability of discharge. In ICP atomic emission spectrometry (ICP AES) systems, the elemental species are atomized and ionized in the high temperature plasma. Traditionally, chromatographers have improved column selectivity to provide a larger magnitude in differences of distribution constant, K (where K=kβ∝t′R; therefore larger retention time differences results from increased K differences), or increased efficiency of the chromatographic process with narrower chromatographic bands giving better resolution. Salt mines represent a natural mineral resource because they contain many useful components, such as K, Ca, Na, and Mg. In: Mavrodineanu R. (eds) Analytical Flame Spectroscopy. Other sources for AES such as flame, arc, spark, glow-discharge source, direct-current plasma, and microwave-induced plasma have been applied for the determination of chromium in special cases. The large number of wavelengths emitted by these systems makes it possible to investigate their structures in detail, including the electron configurations of ground and various excited states. The most common continuous atomizer in AAS is a flame, and the most common discrete atomizer is the electrothermal atomizer. Following this pioneering study, significant variations of the ELCAD design have been developed, including solution cathode glow discharge (SCGD) [9, 10], direct current atmospheric pressure glow discharge (DC-APGD) [11, 12], liquid sampling-atmospheric pressure glow discharge (LS-APGD) [13, 14], liquid electrode plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (LEP-AES) [15, 16], alternating current electrolyte atmospheric liquid discharge (AC-EALD) [17, 18], drop spark discharge (DSD) [19, 20], and liquid electrode chip discharge [21, 22]. It was found that when the pH was lower than 0.8, the glow is very violent and the emission intensity is prone to fluctuation due to the higher conductivity and higher energy. Three types of AAS exist (Fig. This re-emitted radiation is no different in character from the radiation emitted in the atomic emission technique. It contains a DC high voltage power supply, sample introduction, glow discharge system, and spectral detection. In addition, the Pt and quartz capillary would be destroyed when the pH was below 0.8. When returning to the ground state, the energy difference is emitted as light with an element-specific wavelength. Measurement results of the LCGD-AES are in good agreement with the comparison value obtained by inductively coupled plasma (ICP) and ion chromatography (IC). [2, 35] and Webb et al. Impurity contents analyzed by ICP-AES in the sintered Si3N4-10SiC composites with different SiC powder are shown in Figure 2. Of these, ICP-OES and ICP-MS are very linear; that is, a plot of concentration vs. intensity forms a straight line over a wide range of concentrations (Figure 1). Finally, the compatibility of the two separation modes must be taken into account. Creep failure, however, occurred in the Si3N4-SiC composites with SiC(A1) and SiC(A3) particles within 10 h, and then the failure time decreased with increasing SiC(A1) and SiC(A3) contents. Increased interest has been directed to the development of very sensitive analytical methods for trace amount detection of toxic heavy metals in water samples. If the temperature of the atom cell is increased, then more atoms undergo energy exchange collisions with the surrounding hot gases. The LODs of K, Ca, Na, and Mg are 0.390, 0.054, 0.048, and 0.032 mg L−1, respectively. Thus, improved separation may require two columns for the one analysis. Atomic emission occurs when a valence electron in a higher energy atomic … Atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) techniques rely on the fact that an atomized element will absorb light of a characteristic wavelength, elevating it from the ground state to an excited state. The calibration curve determined the detection limit was 20 ppb or 0.067 μM for Al3 +, as it was presented using both a decrease and increase in absorbance at 530 nm and 700 nm, respectively. Jie Yu, Zhichao Zhang, Quanfang Lu, Duixiong Sun, Shuwen Zhu, Xiaomin Zhang, Xing Wang, Wu Yang, "High-Sensitivity Determination of K, Ca, Na, and Mg in Salt Mines Samples by Atomic Emission Spectrometry with a Miniaturized Liquid Cathode Glow Discharge", Journal of Analytical Methods in Chemistry, vol. Switching valves or other methods will be needed to redirect the flow stream from one column to another. Review articles are excluded from this waiver policy. Mezei et al. P. Sandra, F. David, in Encyclopedia of Separation Science, 2000. The probe can offer efficient determination of Al3 + ions in drinking water; the recovery was in the range of 98.5%–101.6% with the RSD below 2% [93]. Measurement results of K, Ca, Na, and Mg in real salt mines by LCGD-AES, ICP, and IC. The practicality of using this approach for metal ion determination, including aluminum (III) in water samples, has also been demonstrated [91]. Observation of the plume at this time allows species to be much more easily detected. Impurity contents in the sintered Si3N4-6Y2O3-10SiC composites. The measurement results of LCGD-AES are very consistent with the comparative values of ICP-AES and IC. This device has been used to create a mercury contamination map by analyzing the samples taken from more than 50 locations in California (US). Correlation between impurity elements and the creep behavior of Si3N4-6Y2O3-SiC composites. a) Mass spectroscopy b) Absorption spectroscopy c) Flame emission spectroscopy d) Atomic emission spectroscopy e) Fluorescence Spectroscopy Which of the following spectral techniques is the most sensitive? The capabilities of the contiguous techniques can be summarized as follows: Optical microscopy: provides superior image quality on relatively flat samples at less than 300–400 ×. The contents of Al impurity in the sintered bodies decreased with decreasing the size and content of SiC particle and mixing time in the range of 250–750 ppm. A1 content contained in the sintered bodies were more than 20 times as great as those calculated from impurity content of the starting powders on the basis of the additive ratio of Si3N4, Y2O3 and SiC powders. The vertical distance between capillary and pointed Pt wire is 2 mm. The first is chemical scavenging or deexcitation (termed quenching) of the nonequilibrium excited-state analyzed atom population before a useful light signal can be emitted. 17JR5RA077 and 17JR5RA075), China. A(λ)= ε(λ)bC = log P. o /P María Dolores Luque de Castro, José Luis Luque García, in Techniques and Instrumentation in Analytical Chemistry, 2002. Based on these results, 3.0 mL min−1 was selected as the optimal solution flow rate. Atomic spectroscopy includes a number of analytical techniques used to determine the elemental composition of a sample (it can be gas, liquid, or solid) by observing its electromagnetic spectrum or its mass spectrum. In addition, another study developed a compact paper-based sensor for detection of mercury contamination in water [98]. The liquid cathode glow discharge-atomic emission spectrometry (LCGD-AES) was successfully applied for measurement of K, Ca, Na, and Mg in salt mines samples. 10.7.4 Evaluation of Atomic Emission Spectroscopy. ppm, more than 3.5 times as great as that of other impurity contents such as Ca, Mg, Fe. Moreover, detection limits can be seriously degraded by spectral interferences, much more common in ICP-AES than in AAS. (1970) Sensitivity, Detection Limit, Precision and Accuracy in Flame Emission and Atomic Absorption Spectrometry. A simple and inexpensive method for heavy metal ion analysis is desirable for real-time monitoring of environmental, biological, and industrial samples. In addition, spectral interferences can hamper the detection. Meanwhile, AuNPs functionalized with targeted functional molecules have been extensively analyzed as tools for sensing different analytes [92]. Comparison of the LODs obtained by LCGD-AES system with other ELCAD-AES systems for the detection of K, Ca, Na, and Mg. In direct comparison to atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS), atomic fluorescence spectroscopy offers a much higher sensitivity, which is due to the lower background noise. AAS vs AES Difference between AAS and AES stems from their operating principles. The analyte solution is introduced into a … Principle of Atomic Absorption /Emission Spectroscopy 15.1 ATOMIC EMISSION-THE FLAME TEST When a small amount of a solution of a metal ion is placed in the flame of a Bunsen burner, the flame turns a color that is characteristic of the metal ion. This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Values of (with a confidence interval of 95%) indicate that the groups’ means are different. Moreover, the recoveries of K, Ca, Na, and Mg by LCGD-AES ranged from 84.05% to 115.94%. What is more, HCl and H2SO4 are easy to generate precipitation with several metal ions [30, 31]. The various emitted wavelengths are dispersed by a diffraction grating, focused, and detected by properly positioned CCDs (charged coupled devices). Spectral lines of Na I also appear at 589.0 and 589.6 nm, which suggests that the blank sample still contains a small amount of impurities. Continuous atomizers introduce the analyte in a steady manner whereas discrete atomizers introduce the analyte discontinuously. Also, for ELCAD, the analyte is directly introduced to the plasma without the use of nebulizer, which results in reduced memory effects and avoids the problem of deposits blocking the system [4]. Therefore, the absolute sizes of the atomic emission signals detected are larger than those seen in AES analysis performed with the same concentration of analyzed atoms within the atomizer. Various conventional methods can be used for aluminum (III) ion detection in water samples. However, when the pH is above 1.6, the emission intensity could not be ascertained clearly because of the lower conductivity and weaker glow [30, 31]. 9-10 Figure 9-1 summarizes many of the processes that take place in a laminar-flow burner. However, the high electron temperature of laser-induced plasmas requires the use of temporal resolution to improve the detection sensitivity. Deionized water (18.25 MΩ cm) purified using a water purification system (Sanshen Medical Devices Co., Ltd., Shanghai, China) was used for the preparation of all working solutions. Moreover, the spectroscopic techniques mass spectrometry (MS), atomic emission detection (AED) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectroscopy (ICPMS) are compatible with HTCGC. A short lecture about Atomic Spectroscopy: Flame Photometry, Atomic Absorption, and Atomic Emission with Coupled Plasma (FP, AA and ICP-AES). The solution overflowing from the top of the quartz capillary was flowed into the waste reservoir through many grooves on the graphite tube. As the size of is larger than that of and , the lower emission intensity is observed. This is mainly due to the lower sensitivity of ICP AES, which is often insufficient for detection of element species at low concentrations in real samples. Heavy metal ions adversely affect human health and the environment. What is more, increasing the water at higher flow rates might also cool the plasma [34]. Auger electron microscopy: minimum area for surface pictures of ≈ 100 nm (Auger), and of 10 nm (SEM mode), and for microchemical analysis of ≈ 100 nm (Auger), of 1–3 μm (energy-dispersive spectrometry). On the whole, the AAS method has been one of the most widely used techniques of trace element analysis. Over the past two decades, electrolyte cathode atmospheric glow discharge (ELCAD) has received a rapid development [2, 3, 6, 7]. As an analytical technique, it uses electromagnetic wavelengths, coming from a light source. The analytical performance of LCGD-AES was evaluated under optimal operating parameters (supporting electrolytes: adjusted to pH = 1.0 with HNO3, discharge voltage: 650 V, flow rate: 3 mL min−1, and interelectrode gap: 2 mm). In addition, the average grain size of Si3N4 ceramics which was prepared by mixing for 72 h was 1.1 times as large as that of the ceramics prepared by mixing for 24 h. Therefore, these results can be concluded that Al impurity considerably influences the creep behavior of the Si3N4-SiC composite. When the discharge voltage is more than 680 V, the Pt cathode turns red and the samples start to boil, which impacts the detection accuracy [30]. Therefore, it is well suited to the field deployment and on-line analysis of multielements in salt mines samples. It was found that the emission intensities of K and Ca decreased significantly with the addition of foreign substances. Distinct elements will absorb these wavelengths differently. Each impurity content in the sintered bodies was substantially greater than that of the impurity detected in the starting powder. A linear range exists between the ratio of absorbance at 650 nm and 520 nm in the Al3 + ion concentration from 10− 6 M to 10− 4 M with a detection limit of 5.7 × 10− 7 M. The probe chelated with Al3 + showed excellent selectivity in the presence of EDTA compared with other metal ions. The electron density of the plasma remains very high during the time the laser pulse interacts with the solid and the vapour. The source light not absorbed in the atomizer passes through the monochromator to the light detector and the data reduction/display system of the spectrometer outputs an absorbance response directly proportional to the concentration of the analyzed atoms in the sample solution. We will be providing unlimited waivers of publication charges for accepted research articles as well as case reports and case series related to COVID-19. Moreover, it has been revealed that the color change from red to blue was due to a red-shift in the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) band and the formation of aggregated species of AuNPs by Al3 +. Mariam Abubaker, ... Bambang Kuswandi, in Green Synthesis, Characterization and Applications of Nanoparticles, 2019. With the solution flow rate maintained at 3 mL min−1, the effect of discharge voltage on emission intensity was studied. Moreover, the atomic lines of Hα and Hβ are at 656.3 and 486.1 nm, which come from the electrolyte around the cathode that is bombarded by the high energy electrons [30, 31]. To evaluate the sensitivity of LCGD to the matrix-induced interferences in the analysis of samples, the effects of organic additives (methanol, ethanol, formic acid, and acetic acid) and inorganic metals (K, Ca, Na, and Mg) on the emission intensity were studied, respectively. K. Yamada, N. Kamiya, in Advanced Materials '93, I, 1994. Therefore, the developed LCGD-AES has the potential to be applied for the determination of metal in complex salt mines samples. A third field in atomic spectroscopy is atomic fluorescence. Table 2. However, there are some indirect effects of temperature on atomic absorption spectroscopy. Sample atomization limits the accuracy, precision, and limit of detection of the analytical instrument. 21567025, 21367023, and 11564037) and the Natural Science Foundation of Gansu Province (nos. Because the emission intensity and stability of discharge are moderate at 650 V, the 650 V discharge voltage was adopted in subsequent studies. Monochromator control and data acquisition were performed with the ZolixScan Basic V4 based software integral to the Omni-λ500. 4. All these indicated that the measurement results of LCGD-AES are reliable and accurate. 3. It is found that the emission intensity is increased with increasing the discharge voltage from 610 to 680 V. However, over 660 V, the increasing voltage will cause fluctuation of the emission intensities because of unstable discharge plasma [30, 31]. B. Michalke, V. Nischwitz, in Liquid Chromatography: Applications, 2013. on the emission intensity of 5 mg L−1 K, Ca, Na, and Mg solutions was investigated. When the size of the anion is increased, the conductivity of the ions in electrolyte will be reduced, and then the current and power are to become lower [34]. Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometry, GFAAS A technique to minimize dilution during atomization of the analyte prior to its determination with atomic absorption spectrometry A technique with more interferences than the more reliable flame atomization A technique with high sensitivity … The emission spectrum obtained in this situation is a continuum due to ion–electron recombination. The DC high voltage source was a DH 1722-6 power supply (Beijing Dahua Radio Factory, Beijing, China) providing the voltage of 0–1000 V and the current of 0–0.5 A. As shown in Figure 6, the net intensities of K, Ca, Na, and Mg are all affected by the acid anions. Moreover, this probe also has several advantages, such as ease of synthesis, functionalization and its use, high sensitivity, and enabling on-site monitoring. Figure 4 shows the temporal tracing of the emission intensity of 5 mg L−1 K solution in different voltages about 5 min after the plasma was stabilized for about 2 min. Philips Technical Library. For example, sealed Pt wire into a quartz tube can form a Pt point discharge, which can improve the excitation efficiency and reduce the energy consumption (<66 W). Therefore, the lines of 766.5, 422.7, 589.0, and 285.2 nm are selected as analytical lines of K I, Ca I, Na I, and Mg I, respectively. Thus, the results show addition of SiC to Si3N4 ceramics promotes to introduce Al impurity to the sintered body. Moreover, it is easy in achieving real-time and on-line monitoring for samples. Figure 4. A light source is used to irradiate the atom cell to yield excited atoms. Jie Yu, Zhichao Zhang, Quanfang Lu, Duixiong Sun, Shuwen Zhu, Xiaomin Zhang, Xing Wang, Wu Yang, " High-Sensitivity Determination of K, Ca, Na, and Mg in Salt Mines Samples by Atomic Emission Spectrometry with a Miniaturized Liquid Cathode Glow Discharge ", Journal of Analytical Methods in Chemistry, vol. Flame atomic emission spectrometry (AES) (Fig. Atomic absorption spectroscopy and atomic emission spectroscopy is a spectroanalytical procedure for the quantitative determination of chemical elements using the absorption of optical radiation by free atoms in the gaseous state. The purpose of the atomization step is to convert the analyte to a reproducible a… Otherwise attains a value > 0.05, indicating that both groups have identical means [38, 39]. The LODs of K, Ca, Na, and Mg were 0.390, 0.054, 0.048, 0.032 mg L−1, respectively. Unfortunately, it is difficult to judge the cause of this type of interference. SEM: minimum area for surface pictures of 4–5 nm (conventional scanning microscope), and for microchemical analysis of 1–3 μm (energy-dispersive spectrometry and/or wavelength-dispersive spectrometry). • Analyte atoms in solution are aspirated into the excitation region where they are desolvated, vaporized, and atomized by a flame, discharge, or plasma. Various conventional methods can be used for aluminum (III) ion detection in water samples. Being a multielement technique, ICP-AES exhibits detection limits for chromium in the range of 1–5 μg l− 1. AAS stands for ‘Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy‘ and AES stands ‘Atomic Emission Spectroscopy.’Both of these are spectro-analytical methods used in Chemistry in order to quantify the amount of a chemical species; in other words, to measure the concentration of a specific chemical species. To reduce signal fluctuations of discharge induced by the peristaltic pump, several knots were tied in the peristaltic pump tubing. Sample pretreatment is generally the same as for AAS, calling for leaching, dissolution, and digestion as the main procedure for most solid samples, while liquid samples, such as water or beverages, can be introduced directly in many instances. All results indicated that there is no significant difference between the two methods and suggested that the measurement results using LCGD-AES are roughly reliable and both the techniques are in agreement with each other. A PMTH-S1-CR131 photomultiplier (PMT) running at −1000 V was used as the detector. Traditional analysis tools such as AAS, ICP-AES, and ICP-MS are widely used for the determination of metal contents in a variety of real samples. This design enables modern ICP AES instruments to monitor simultaneously the main elements of the periodic table. To validate the proposed method, salt mines samples (A, B, C, and D) were applied for the determination of K, Ca, Na, and Mg. The correlation coefficient between the failure time and Al content was the highest value, about 0.85, for four kinds of impurity elements. This paper describes the development of a highly sensitive liquid-electrode plasma atomic emission spectrometry (LEP-AES) by combination of quartz glass chip and sample flow system. So it can be employed for quantitative determination of metal elements in salt mines. Atomic emission spectroscopy (AES) is an analytical tool used to determine and quantify the elemental composition of a material. Thus, the effect of the solution pH was also optimized in the present study. The decrement in Al content with decreasing SiC particle size is thought to be because the contact stress between the rigid SiC particles and the SIALON balls or/and Si3N4 pot decreases with decreasing SiC particle size, and then the amount of wear of the SIALON balls and Si3N4 pot is reduced.
