Abstract

By slightly changing the optical and burner systems of the conventional atomic absorption spectrometer a computer controlled scanning method has been developed, which enables us to get a picture of absorbance distribution over the entire cross section of the analytical flames quickly, reproducibly and in high resolution. The plotting of different distribution functions obtainable by computerized data processing and the conclusions drawn from them are illustrated with some examples of flame atomization of cobalt and magnesium salts. The newly discovered method, by its reliability and little demand on time, allows the extension of the general applicability of AAS in revealing analytical interference effects and in the study of flame-chemical processes.
