Soil storage: CV-AAS checks mercury levels

Date: Jun 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Researchers in the Czech Republic have used cold vapour atomic absorption spectroscopy (CV-AAS) to re-analyse mercury levels in well-studied soil samples to discern whether or not levels of this important elemental pollutant are stable in long-term storage.

Copper removal: Nanogel tested with AAS

Date: Apr 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Scientists in Iran have developed a free radical synthesis of nanosilver/gelatin-poly (acrylic acid) nanocomposite hydrogels as antibacterial agents that can remove copper(II) metal ions. They used a raft of techniques including atomic absorption spectroscopy to evaluate their setup.
