Abstract

The distribution and speciation of trace metals in natural waters is only slightly, at best, understood. Interactions with organic substances can effectively distribute the metals throughout many ill-defined physical and chemical. To better comprehend the complexity of metal-organic interactions this work focused on the delineation of trace iron species present in a natural system. The separation of Fe(II) and Fe(III) was successfully accomplished using a variation of an ion exchange method involving resin-loaded filter paper. The quantitation of the various iron species was determined using linear scan voltammetry and atomic absorption. The total iron concentration, determined as the sum of the various separate species, compares favorably with the total iron concentration as determined directly using atomic absorption methods.
