A New Sampling Method for Flame Photometry

  • L. C. Westwood
Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 9)


The use of emulsions and dispersions to convey liquid organic samples to the flame in atomic absorption and emission provides an elegant method of analysis of lubricating oils, polymer solutions, and other organic materials containing metals. Types of emulsifiers, and the effect of various emulsion characteristics an the analytical results are discussed.
