Abstract
This thesis reports on the hyphenation of well known individual techniques into novel combinations which allow the creation of new strategies and techniques for performing speciation analysis. Speciation analysis is a relatively new and exciting area of analytical chemistry which gives the analyst a greater understanding of the impact of elemental species on the environment. The use of microcolumns filled with either acidic alumina or sulphydryl cotton to preconcentrate and separate selenium(IV) and selenium(VI) species is reported. The microcolumns were incorporated into flow analysis systems using inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) for detec...
