Toxic heavy metals in groundwater of a portion of the Front Range mineral belt
MetadataShow full item record
Anodic stripping voltammetry and gas chromatography have been investigated with respect to their suitability for multielement analyses of trace elements in natural waters. The elements of interest in this study of toxic and esthetically undesirable elements in the regional ground waters of the Front Range Mineral Belt are arsenic, cadmium, copper, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, selenium, silver, and zinc. Atomic absorption spectrophotometry is commonly used for analysis of these elements but permits only one element to be determined at a time. Anodic stripping voltammetry was found to be highly ...
