Özet

The concentrations of iron, manganese, zinc, copper, lead, cobalt, cadmium, nickel and chromium in soil samples from Yahyali-Kayseri, Turkey were determined by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) after digestion aqua regia. The ranges for the analytes in the soil samples were found as 11.1-15.2 mg/g for iron, 0.6-1.1 mg/g for manganese, 0.1-0.69 mg/g for zinc, 59.3-124.1 mu g/g for lead, 39.8-282 mu g/g for nickel, 41.2-79 mu g/g for chromium, 39.6-156.5 mu g/g for copper, 14.3-24.4 mu g/g for cobalt, 5.9-10.5 mu g/g for cadmium. The correctness of the procedure was checked with analysis certified reference materials and with addition-recovery tests to different soil samples.
