Herbel ABSTRACT A simple method was developed to speciate inorganic Se in the mgL21 range using coupled ion chromatography-hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry. Hydride generation atomic absorption spectroscopy (HGAAS) Some elements, mostly metalloids like antimony, arsenic, selenium, and tellurium, are regularly measured by HGAAS atomization technique. Hydride generation is also a non-flame non-heat reaction process to generate the metal hydride, but the hydride must be heated by flame or electric current to release the metal atoms which are then analyzed by atomic absorption. The atomization efficiency is thus greatly increased with a corresponding decrease in detection limits. sic hydride generation method. The developed technique shows an improvement factor ranging from 56 to 450 times in detection limits in Using this technique, better sensitivity in the result is obtained as expected. This technique is similar to cold vapor technique in that a reducing agent like NaBH 4 is used to convert these metals to hydrides such as AsH. Analytical Services Unit  SIMPLE SCHEMATIC DIAGRAM 28 29. Mercury can be converted in the gaseous form upon reaction with either stannous chloride (SnCl 2) or sodium borohydride (NaBH 4).
