Electrothermal atomization
« on: June 27, 2009, 03:06:08 PM »
I'm writing my final thesis for my graduation and my mentor bugs me with many things that is not directly in relation with my experimental work. One of these things is electrothermal atomization. She said to write down what are the ways of electrothermal atomization. I've been searching the net but I couldn't find anything except abstracts about electrothermal atomizers. So if anyone could help it would mean a great deal to me.

If by electrothermal atomization you mean resistively heating a graphite (or far less commonly, W/Ta) tube with the analyte until the solvent boils off, the inter and intramolecular bonds break in the compound, and then ultimately your sample is atomized, then perhaps you should look for a book on Atomic Absorption.

Neither flask nor beaker.
