    Abstract

    An analytical revolution in the area of metals determination took place in the mid-fifties when Sir Alan Walsh of CSIRO, Melbourne, Australia, invented the technique of atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) [1]. Until then, metals had to be determined by the tedious, labor-intensive, and time-consuming techniques of wet chemistry separations and gravimetric, titrimetric, or colorimetric measurements.
