Speciation Analysis of Mercury in Sediments by HPLC Using HPLC Hyphenated to Vapor Generation Atomic Fluorescence Spectrometry Following Microwave-Assisted Extraction
A method using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) coupled with vapor generation atomic fluorescence spectrometry (VGAFS) has been developed for the separation and determination of mercury species in sediment samples. The method is based on the extraction of samples using 0.1% (v/v) 2-mercaptoethanol as the only extractant. The separation and determination of mercury species was achieved by direct injection of the extractant to the HPLC–VGAFS system.
