|Abstract:||Thallium(III) was selectively accumulated, in an open circuit, from a stirred Britton-Robinson buffer solution (pH 4.56) onto a carbon paste electrode incorporating 8-hydroxyquinoline. The ensuing measurement was carried out by differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry after reducing the thallium(III) to metallic thallium in ammonia-ammonium chloride buffer (pH 10.00). Factors affecting the accumulation, reduction and stripping steps were investigated and an optimized procedure was developed. Under optimized conditions, a calibration plot for thallium(III) concentration in the range 5.00 × 10-10-1.60 × 10-5 mol l-1 gave two linear regions arising from different controlling factors during the accumulation step. A detection limit of 2.30 × 10-10 mol l-1 (0.047 ppb) (S/N = 3) was found for a 2 min accumulation. For 10 successive determinations of 1.00 × 10-6 mol l-1 and 1.00 × 10-7 mol l-1 TlIII, relative standard deviations, sr, of 2.8 and 4.8% were obtained, respectively. Interferences from other ions and organic substances were examined. The developed method was applied to thallium determinations in sea-water and human urine samples.|
