Abstract  

A method was developed for the preconcentration and separation of trace manganese from natural water samples by complexation with dithiocarbamate followed by adsorption onto C18-solid phase extraction column prior to irradiation. The Mn recovery was better than 99.8% without inteference from iron(III) at 5 mg.l-1, copper(II), zinc(II), aluminum(III) and cobalt(II) at 0.5 mg.l-1 and sodium(I), potassium(I), magnesium(II) and calcium(II) at 1 mg.l-1. The separation factor was 100 and the detection limit was 0.01 μg.l-1 with good precision and accuracy with a relative error lower than 3%. The method was applied to the determination of Mn in tap, well, river and treated water samples.
