Atomic-Absorption Spectroscopya Critical Review

Volume 20, Number 5 (Oct. 1966) Page 281-288

Slavin, Walter

Atomic-absorption spectroscopy is reviewed as an analytical technique. The effect of recent instrumental advances on analytical procedures is reported. It is now possible to determine every metal and semimetal for which lamps have been made. Analytical procedures by atomic absorption are generalized and limitations of the technique stated. The various instrumental techniques for metal analysis are compared to show for what purposes atomic absorption is useful. Applications in various analytical fields are mentioned briefly.
