The physical properties and the chemical compositions of various lignite and coal fly-ash particulate matters sampled in the four main power plants in Hungary are investigated. The morphology of the particles is studied by optical microscopy and SEM, while for chemical analysis SEM micro-X-ray analysis, INAA and ICP-AES/AAS techniques are used. Analytical results are given for about 30 minor- and micro-components. Distribution coefficients for 16 selected toxic elements are calculated among the various species of fly-ash fractions investigated.
