Determination of the Effectiveness of Water Purifiers in Removing Lead from Water Samples Using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy

Honor Student Determination of the Effectiveness of Water Purifiers in Removing Lead from Water Samples Using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy

Department: Chemistry
Symposium Year: 2013
Student(s): Erin Kennedy
Faculty Mentor(s): Dr. Matthew Crawford

The effectiveness of various common water filters to remove lead in water samples was tested.  Lead was qualitatively and quantitatively determined in the water samples both before and after filtration using atomic absorption spectroscopy.  A series of standard solutions were prepared using a Pb(NO3)2 stock solution and analyzed.  Both normal calibration and standard addition calibration were performed to determine the amount of lead present in the samples.
