Abstract  

The aim of this work consisted on the implementation of sufficiently accurate and sensitive analytical procedure for the analysis of metal concentration in rainwater. Different sample preparation procedures were tested to achieve the required concentration prior to direct total reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) analysis. TXRF and anodic stripping voltammetry (ASV) were compared in regard to achieved detection limits, precision and accuracy.
