Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy

“The only source of knowledge is experience” — Albert Einstein Flame atomic absorption spectroscopy is a well established and precise method for elemental analysis giving concentration results in mg/L (ppm) levels. However, better sensitivity is achievable using electro- thermal atomisation with a graphite furnace. Limitations of flame AAS Burner – nebuliser is a rather inefficient […]

Flame Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy

“Formal education will make you a living, self education will make you a fortune” — Jin Rohn  Sample atomisation produces ground state atoms that are necessary for atomic absorption to take place. This involves application of thermal energy to break the bonds that hold the atoms together. The complete atomisation assembly comprises of: Nebuliser Spray […]
