Mercury Sampling and Analysis

Tuesday, May 19, 2020 - 1:30 P.M. EDT

About This Webinar:

This is the third Webinar in a series on Metals Analysis. We will discuss sampling and analysis for mercury. Techniques for clean sample collection and sample preparation will be covered. Beginning with cold vapor atomic absorption analysis, we will also cover more advanced technology such as atomic fluorescence and inductively coupled plasma with mass spectral detection. These detectors can be used for total mercury analysis or combined with chromatographic techniques for mercury speciation.

Topics The Presentation Will Cover Include:

  • General Overview of analytical techniques for mercury analysis
  • Pros and Cons of instrumental techniques
  • CVAA, CVAF, GC-CVAF, HPLC-ICP/MS techniques – strengths and weaknesses
  • Analytes – total mercury (standard and low level) and mercury species: reactive, elemental, methyl, dimethyl, ethyl
  • Review of EPA methods (SW-846 Methods & EPA Office of Water Methods) : 1669, 7470, 7471, 1631, 1630, 6020

Who Should Attend?

  • Consulting and Engineering firms
  • Industry Representatives
  • Regulatory Officials
  • Data Validators

A question and answer session will immediately follow the presentation. At the conclusion of each webinar, you will be asked for your feedback and opinions for future webinar topics to be developed by EETA.
