Applications of atomic absorption spectroscopy


Some of the applications of atomic absorption spectroscopy are as follows:

  1. It is used in petroleum industry, metallic impurities in petrol, lubricating oils have been determined.
  2. It is used in alloys, metallurgy and in inorganic analysis.
  3. Used in analysis of many ores and minerals.
  4. It is used in biochemical analysis such as used in estimation of sodium, potassium, zinc, lead, cadmium, mercury, calcium, iron and magnesium.
  5. Also used in pharmaceutical analysis, for estimation of zinc in insulin preparations, creams and in calamine, oils, calcium in calcium salts, lead in calcium carbonate and also as impurity in number of chemical salts have been done.
  6. Sodium, calcium, and potassium in saline and ringer solutions are estimated by this method.
  7. Analysis of ash for determining the contents of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron is carried out in boiler deposits.
  8. Used in cement industry.
  9. Used in agriculture, soil, forestry, fertilizer and eceanography etc.
  10. Used in assay of Intraperitoneal dialysis, activated charcoal, cisplatin
These are some of the applications of atomic absorption spectroscopy
