Abstract:A novel matrix-less cloud point extraction (ML-CPE) procedure was developed for the determination of mercury (Hg) in groundwater samples collected from the Thar coalfield, Pakistan. For preconcentration of Hg, a complexing reagent, diethyldithiophosphate (DEDTP) was selected. Various parameters such as temperature, time, pH, and amount of complexing reagent and concentration of surfactant concentrations were studied in order to find the best conditions for the enrichment of mercury in water samples. In the pro… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
