Abstract

The essential features of flow injection analysis are described and the use of flow injection methodology for sample introduction for flame atomic-absorption spectrometry is briefly reviewed. A flow injection analogue of the standard additions method has been devised and applied to the analysis of chromium in some BCS standard steels. The results showed good agreement with the certificate values. The use of a concentration gradient forming mixing chamber to provide a novel method of rapid, single-standard Calibration is described and the results of preliminary experiments with magnesium show the method to be viable. The potential usefulness of both methods is critically evaluated.
