Abstract  

Sequential multistep procedure, usually used for the fractionation and characterization of soil organic matter was tested for Hg content in the individual steps and fractions. Under general laboratory conditions serious problems have arosen during the attempt in the Hg mass balance calculation. Several sources of Hg contamination were recognized. The most serious was the background concentration of Hg even in research grade chemicals (what is in general not declared) and laboratory air. The work on operational Hg speciation as non-humic bound, humic acid, fulvic acid bound proceeds from the established status-quo on distribution of mercury of soil organic matter.

Abstract  

The chromatographic behaviour of Hg(II), methylmercury, phenylmercury and Cu(II) on three different sorbents, strong acidic sulfobutyl cation-exchanger, weak basic aminopropyl anion-exchanger and silicagel has been studied. A dithizone solution in cetyltrimethylammonium hydrogensulfate water micellar medium was found as a useful post-column derivatization reagent for UV-VIS detection. The detection limits 1.1 ng, 2.2 ng, 6.2 ng and 1.6 ng were found in silicagel chromatographic system and dithizone detection system for Hg(II), methylmercury, phenylmercury and respectively for Cu(II).
