Abstract

The concentration of specific minerals in foods can be determined by a variety of methods. The aim of this lab is to acquaint you with the use of atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) and atomic emission spectroscopy (AES) for that purpose. The specific type of AES will be inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES).
