|Title:||Determination of inorganic contaminants in glue by inductively coupled argon plasma optical emission spectrometry|
|Abstract:||A closed vessel method using a microwave oven was developed for the determination of As, B, Ba, Bi, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Ni, Pb, Se, Sn and Sb by Inductively Coupled Argon Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP OES). The method was applied to samples of polyvinyl acetate-based glue in water emulsions. Parameters such as wavelength, nebulization pressure and RF power were optimized and the residual acidity after the digestion process was determined. The addition of internal standards was evaluated and the accuracy of the proposed method was verified with addition and recovery experiments and also with certified reference materials, achieving good results. Using a nebulization flow rate of 0.73 L min(-1) and a RF power of 1200W it was possible to obtain adequate values for limit of detection and limit of quantification as well as recovery values ill the range of 80-106%, for all the analytes. The analysis of coloured glue samples (white, black, blue, yellow, red and green), widely used by children, showed no contamination by the elements studied. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V.
