Extended Calibration of Flame Atomic-Absorption Instruments by a Flow Injection Peak Width Method
Analyst (1984)
  • Julian Tyson
Abstract
The principles of two existing methods of calibration based on flow injection methodology are outlined and
the mathematical basis of a method based on peak width is presented. On the basis of the single well stirred
tank model, it is shown that peak width at any concentration is proportional to logarithm of a function of
concentration. The relationship is verified experimentally over the range 1-1 000 p.p.m. of magnesium. The
advantages and limitations of the method are discussed.
