The concentration of Al is determined by adsorptive stripping voltammetry at the HMDE. The method is suitable for Al in concentrations in the range of 0.1 ppb to approx. 40 ppb Al3+. Pb2+ ions do not interfere up to a concentration ratio Pb:Al = 10:1. Due to the slow complex formation of Al with solochrome violet RS the measuring solution was heated to 40 °C for 10 min prior to the determination. For standard addition a solution of Al with solochrome violet RS complex was used. All reagents have to be added in the order as listed below.
