New PDF release: Analysis of Seawater : A Guide for the Analytical and

By T.R. Crompton

This practice-oriented guidebook collects approximately all tools released because 1975 at the chemical research of seawaters. special descriptions of either classical and such a lot complicated physico-chemical and chemical options together with forty five tables and forty eight figures make this quantity a useful resource for analysts, oceanographers, fisheries specialists, politicians and determination makers engaged in seawater environmental safeguard. The equipment are offered in a logical demeanour in order that the reader can without difficulty discover ways to practice them.

Example text

To avoid contamination, the following procedures have often been used. 2–2 l sample before aliquots are taken for analysis [88, 90, 103, 109, 110]. Sometimes, however, the washing procedure has not been found to be fully satisfactory [87]. For example, it has been reported that strong adsorption of cadmium and lead occurs on purified unconditioned membrane filters when triple-distilled water is passed through the filter, whilst there is no change in the concentration with a river water sample after filtration of 500 ml [104].

Even the air entering the sampling area should be cleaned of hydrocarbons, perhaps by filtration through charcoal. The all-pervasive smell of diesel fuel in most oceanographic vessels does not bode well for the accuracy of any analyses for petroleum hydrocarbons. If the analyses are to be performed on board, the room in which the samples are prepared and analysed should, in fact, be built as a clean room. Many modern oceanographic vessels are constructed to accept modular laboratories, which can be removed between voyages.

The amount of phthalate bound to the glass test tubes appears to be a function of the aqueous solubility of the phthalate. 2 mg bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate per litre of artificial seawater [70]. 10 shows that the more soluble dibutyl phthalate is absorbed far less than bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate. The amount of solute also appears to be altered by the presence of other material already on the surface. Between 70% and 80% of the total polychlorinated biphenyls stayed in the aqueous phase when bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate was not present.
