  • ICP Analysis of Multiple Elements in Drinking Water

    The amount of water typically consumed by an adult is said to be about two liters per day, and nearly all of this is tap water or mineral water, generally referred to as "drinking water." Conducting safety inspections are the responsibility of each country according to their respective regulations. Typically, there are many target elements included in the test, such as sodium (Na), calcium ...

  • Content Analysis of Toxic Elements in Soil by Simultaneous ICP

    Contaminated soil not only leads to contamination of untreated drinking water through permeation into river water and rainwater, it adversely affects health when the soil itself is directly ingested as a child puts the ground into a stoma into a play etc. Therefore, assessment of soil toxicity using a defined method is required. I In Japan, the Soil ...

  • Atmospheric chemical element pollution in an urban water-associated environment

    Nowadays, sustainability has become a complicated issue mainly in urban centres. Owing to the atmospheric emissions, the incorporation of toxic chemical elements is still not well known for urban water-associated ecosystems. Tillandsia bromeliads were employed as passive biomonitors of air pollution. Otherwise, the tank bromeliad Canistropsis billbergioides, native to the Atlantic Forest, was ...

  • Determination of micro and macro elements in waters with the ELAN DRC-e

    The ability of reaction cell technology to reduce the effects of spectral interferences is well-known, but another, lesser-known capability also exists: extending the dynamic range. This is accomplished by adjusting the bandpass parameters with no gas in the cell. Because the bandpass parameters can be adjusted on a per-mass basis, sensitivity can be reduced on selected isotopes without affecting ...

  • Application of set pair analysis based on the improved five-element connectivity in the evaluation of groundwater quality in XuChang, Henan Province, China

    The evaluation of groundwater quality plays an important part in the evaluation of groundwater resources. It analyses the temporal and spatial distributions and utilisation of underground water according to the main components and corresponding water quality standards for underground water. Thereby, it can provide a scientific basis for the development, utilisation, planning, and management of ...

  • Element patterns for particulate matter in stormwater effluent

    Particulate matter in stormwater deteriorates the quality of receiving water and sediment. Characterization of stormwater particulate matter by means of its particle-associated element pattern provides an aid to determining its impact on receiving surface waters. During a 6 month measurement campaign, we determined particle-associated concentrations of major pollutants and rare earths for three ...

  • Mercury Analysis

    Characteristics of Mercury What is Mercury? Mercury is a naturally occurring silver-colored metallic element noted for its occurrence as a liquid at room temperature and toxic to living organisms. This silvery, opaque liquid metal is very dense, yet has a high surface tension that causes it to form tiny perfect spheres in the pores of the rocks it is found in. It is ...

  • Element profiles in hair and nails of children reflect the uptake from food and the environment

    The present study evaluated if the element profiles in hair and nails of children from the Lake Victoria region in Kenya reflect uptake from food and the environment. To this purpose, the element concentrations in hair and nails were related to element concentrations measured in food items, water, and soil. The highest intake of most elements occurred via ingestion of the fish Rastrineobola ...
