Determination of aluminum in water samples by adsorptive voltammetry

This Bulletin describes the voltammetric determination of aluminum in water samples down to a concentration of 1 μg/L. An aluminum complex is formed with alizarin red S (DASA) and enriched at the HMDE. The following determination employs differential pulse adsorptive stripping voltammetry (DP-AdSV). Disturbing Zn ions are eliminated by addition of CaEDTA.
