Determination of Pb, Ni, Hg, Cr, Cd in Edible Vegetables in the West South of Tehran Province with Atomic Absorption

Eftekhar Shirvani Mahdavi

Abstract:
In this research, edible vegetables from Babasalman and Eslamshahr regions were sampled in summer 2007 from farms for which well water was used. The samples were then prepared and concentration of the trace elements were determined by using atomic absorption spectrometry in Iranian Atomic Energy Agency. According to the analysis the minimum and maximum concentration of Pb 0.0050 ± 0.0001 ppm in mint (stem) of Babasalman and 0.0645 ± 0.0010 ppm in radish (leaf) of Eslamshahr, Ni 0.0004 ± 0.0001 ppm in radish (root) of Babasalman and 0.0175 ± 0.0001 ppm in bulbil (root) of Eslamshahr, Cr 0.0903 ± 0.0006 ppm in radish (root) of Babasalman and 0.8801 ± 0.0036 ppm in mint (leaf) of Eslamshahr, respectively. Minimum of Cd concentration was lower than detection limit of spectrometer and maximum was 0.0816 ± 0.0002 ppm in radish (leaf) of Babasalman and concentration of Hg was lower than detection limit of spectrometer in all of the samples and only was 0.1399 ± 0.0002 ppm in cress of Babasalman.

Hello, I read your article.I think it was very perfect. I'm studding in same subject with you. My subject is determination of Pb Ni and Cd in the 2 erea in tehran and a city in west of iran with atomic absoption.I don't have enogh references. Please help me in this mater
