Abstract:

We have developed a new method for the microextraction and speciation of arsenite and arsenate species. It is based on ionic liquid dispersive liquid liquid microextraction and electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry. Arsenite is chelated with ammonium pyrrolidinedithiocarbamate at pH 2 and then extracted into the fine droplets of 1- butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluormethylsulfonyl) imide which acts as the extractant. As(V) remains in the aqueous phase and is then reduced to As(III). The concentration of As(V) can be calculated as the difference between total inorganic As and As(III). The pH values, chelating reagent concentration, types and volumes of extraction and dispersive solvent, and centrifugation time were optimized. At an enrichment factor of 255, the limit of detection and the relative standard deviation for six replicate determinations of 1.0 μgL−1 As(III) are 13 ngL−1 and 4.9 %, respectively. The method was successfully applied to the determination of As(III) and As(V) in spiked samples of natural water, with relative recoveries in the range of 93.3–102.1 % and 94.5–101.1 %, respectively.
