Experiences with the Analytical Procedures for the Determination of Methylmercury in Environmental Samples


The analytical method using ethyaltion, gas chromatography - cold vapour atomic fluorescence spectroscopy, combined with different pretreatment procedures, has been used for the determination of methylmercury in various aqueous and solid environmental samples. Diffferent types of samples with varying matrices and MeHg concentration levels require different pretreatment procedures in order to isolate/separate MeHg from the sample matrix, and to overcome interference in the ethylation reaction process
