Green coffee: Mineral deposits by FAAS

Unroasted, green, coffee beans have become a popular alternative to regular coffee because of purported health benefits so getting a clearer picture of what mineral ions and other components might be present in different infusions is important. Now, a fast and simple method for the analysis of infusions has been developed - high resolution-continuum source flame atomic absorption spectrometry - the technique can provide total concentrations of calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and manganese ions.

Bomb and table-top acid dissolution procedures and ICP-MS were used to determine the mass fractions of trace elements in the iron formation reference materials FER-1, FER-2, FER-3, FER-4 and IF-G.

FAAS (flame atomic absorption spectroscopy)  has been used to determine the concentration of essential trace metals, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc, in breast milk. The results  suggest that normal dietary intake do not affect levels available to breastfeeding infant and so mothers should be encouraged to take a supplement when they are deficient.

We are proud to announce a new series of educational webinars run in collaboration with Chromedia, COAST, and SciMind, a product of the American Chemical Society. These webinars will build into a must-have set of tutorial materials for the analytical scientist.

Professor Tony Mallet of the University of Greenwich presents an essay on elemental compositions from 'accurate mass' determinations.

See how you can determine the emission spectra of hydrogen and other elements with a diffraction grating, a meterstick, and a little trigonometry.
