The research was initiated with the overall objective of developing reliable, cost-effective methods utilizing flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry for the trace elemental analysis of soil and sediment samples containing complex matrices. The soil sample matrix studied consisted of more than 0.1 percent aluminum and iron; the sediment sample matrix contained more than 0.1 percent aluminum and iron plus lesser quantities of calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphate and potassium. Conventional flame AAS methods were found to produce accurate results for the analyses of cobalt, copper, lead, manganese, nickel and zinc in these matrices. The barium, calcium, strontium and vanadium content of these samples could not be accurately determined by conventional flame AAS techniques. However, reliable results were obtained using appropriate flame types with the addition of lanthanum and/or an easily ionizable alkali salt to all samples and standards.
