In this study, a fast and simple vortex assisted solid phase extraction method was developed for the separation/preconcentration of basic fuchsin in various water samples. The determination of basic fuchsin was carried out at a wavelength of 554 nm by spectrophotometry. Reduced graphene oxide which was used as a solid phase extractor was synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and the Brunauer, Emmett and Teller. The optimum conditions are as follows: pH 2, contact times for adsorption and elution of 30 s and 90 s, respectively, 10 mg adsorbent, and eluent (ethanol) volume of 1 mL. The effects of some interfering ions and dyes were investigated. The method was linear in the concentration range of 50-250 mu g L-1. The adsorption capacity was 34.1 mg g(-1). The preconcentration factor, limit of detection and precision (RSD, %) of the method were found to be 400, 0.07 mu g L-1 and 1.2%, respectively. The described method was validated by analyzing basic fuchsin spiked certified reference material (SPS-WW1 Batch 114-Wastewater) and spiked real water samples. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V.
