Introduction

minor, and trace elements in foodstuffs (Chemicool.com, 2016). A liquid sample containing

the metal analyte is aspirated into an air-acetylene flame, causing evaporation of the solvent

and vaporization of the free metal atoms (Chemicool.com, 2016). This process is called as

atomization. The common emission source that emits radiation characteristic of a particular

metal is a hollow cathode lamp. A monochromator is used to select the specific wavelength

of light. In this experiment, flame atomization will be used to determine iron in the solution.

Spectroscopic measurements are easily performed with liquid samples (Chemicool.com, 2016).

Flame atomic absorption spectroscopy (FAAS) can only analyze ions or atoms in solution

sample should be done in solution form in order to allow FAAS to analyze the sample

The objective of the experiment is to determine the amount of iron present in a given

food sample. The known iron sample is prepare with different concentration from 2.5ppm to

10ppm, they are used to design the calibration such that the unknown sample concentration

The materials used in the experiment were 100 ppm Fe standard, reagent-grade water, 2 %

(v/v) nitric acid, unknown solid sample, 0.1 % (w/w) 1, 10-phenanthroline monohydrate, 10 %

hydroxide (NaOH). The apparatus and instruments that used are hotplate, beakers, plastic tubes,

0.45m filter paper, measuring cylinder, volumetric flask, watch glass, atomic absorption

Methodology

A) Preparation of Unknown

A solid unknown would be provided by the instructor. The sample was digested by

hydrochloric acid (conc.) was added in a beaker. A graduated cylinder was used to deliver

the correct acid volumes. These steps were done in the fume hood. The beaker was warmed

on a hotplate with a watch glass on top. The reaction was watched carefully, the heat was

turned down when the reaction became violent. There should be no solid at the bottom of

the beaker once the digestion was completed. The mixture was let cool and then it was added

water. The beaker was rinsed with reagent-grade water several times to ensure that all

materials were transferred. It was then diluted to the mark with reagent-grade water and

mixed well. The unknown solution was transferred to a plastic bottle and saved.

First, 5 ppm iron standard was prepared. 5 mL of the provided 100 ppm iron standard was

pipetted into a 100 mL volumetric flask and diluted to the mark with 2 % nitric acid. Second,

test solution of unknown was prepared. 0.1 mL of the unknown solution prepared in Part A

was pipetted into a 100 mL volumetric flask and diluted to the mark with 2 % nitric acid.

Then, the absorbance of the two prepared solutions was recorded using 2 % nitric acid as

the blank.

The recommended linear range of response for atomic spectroscopic measurements of iron

was 2.5 to 10 ppm. A set of four standards that span this range was designed with even

concentration spacing. Aliquot volume of the 100 ppm iron standard was rounded to fit the

available pipettes. The results from the 5 ppm iron standard were used to predict the

absorbance range corresponding to 2.5 to 10 ppm iron. This information was used together

with the measured absorbance of the unknown solution based on a 10 mL aliquot volume

that would produce an absorbance that you would predict to fall in the middle of the 2.5 to

Discussion

concentration of a specific element in a sample, using a combination of a known absorption spectra

and measured absorbance to determine analyte concentration, using the Beer-Lambert Law to

correlate absorption and concentration (Melville, 2014). This works because each element has

characteristic absorption spectra, relating to the specific, quantized transitions of electrons to

excited states (Melville, 2014).

The Beer-Lambert law (or Beer's law) is the linear relationship between absorbance and

concentration of an absorbing species (Hplc.chem.shu.edu, 2016). The Beer-Lambert law is

necessary in order to compare its absorbance with that of the sample solution of unknown

concentration. The relationship between the absorbance of a solution and the concentration of the

absorbing species is known as Beers law, which written as A=abc. If absorption measurements

are conducted by same spectrometer, the cells should have the same pathlengths (b), the

absorptivity(a) and the cell thickness(b) (Food chemicals codex, 1981). The concentration of the

sample solution is directly proportional to the absorbance of the sample solution.

Based on the graph, the calibration curve is more accurate to the plotted data points. The

graph had generated a regression of R = 0.996932. The R2 value obtained was higher than the

acceptable R2 value which is 0.9973. This mean that the regression of R model has a good fit. The

y-intercept of the trendline is near-zero. The trendline followed trivially from the Beer-Lambert

Law, which stated that A = kbC. If C = 0, A must obviously also equal to 0 (Melville, J. 2014).

Among all the sample products, wheat flour contained a highest concentration of iron in every 1g

of the sample, which is 0.8791mg of iron per gram.

The advantages of AAS is high sample throughput, easy to use and has a high precision.

The concentration of sample is calculated by using the equation y = mx + c from the plotted graph.

FAAS calculation had showed a slight higher value by comparing with two concentration of

unknown sample.

Conclusion

The objective of this experiment which is to determine the concentration of iron ions, Fe2+

in the iron pill achieved. The concentration of unknown iron sample is fall between the ranges of

standard calibration from 2.5ppm to 10ppm. The trendlines produced is a direct correlation

between concentration and absorption, hence it means that the linear fit is obey to Beer-Lambert

law.The high values of the correlation coefficients (0.9973) obtained demonstrate good linear

correlation of the absorbance with trace element concentrations. The higher the concentration of

iron pill, the higher the absorbance. The absorbance of the unknown sample is 0.8791 mg/L. Every

1g of the sample contains 0.8791 mg of iron.
