FILHO, Newton L. Dias et al. Voltammetry of Mercury(II) Based on an Organo-Clay Modified Graphite Electrode. Port. Electrochim. Acta [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.2, pp.163-179. ISSN 0872-1904.

Organo-clay complex of ligand-hexadecyltrimethylammonium with montmorillonite was made for the purpose of application as a preconcentration agent in a chemically  modified carbon paste electrode for determination of mercury (II) in aqueous solution. It was found out that the adsorption of Hg(II) by organo-clay complex is independent of the pH of the solution. It was also found out that the adsorption of the remaining metals Cd(II), Pb(II), Cu(II), Zn(II), and Ni(II) was dependent on the  changes in pH solutions and increased when it varies from 1 to 8. The resultant material was characterized by cyclic and differential pulse anodic voltammetry using a modified graphite paste electrode in different supporting electrolytes. The mercury response was evaluated with respect to pH, electrode composition, preconcentration time, mercury concentration, possible interferences and other variables.

Palavras-chave : adsorption; preconcentration; clay; carbon paste electrode; voltammetry.
