Metal determinations at low concentration levels (<= ng mL(-1)) comprise one of most important targets in analytical chemistry. This interest also increases in different areas such as biology, medicine, environment and food samples. In spite of inherent high sensitivities obtained for electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry (ETAAS) and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), these techniques have some limitations depending on the concomitants. As a result, interest in preconcentration techniques still continues increasingly for trace metal determinations by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) due to the high accuracy of this method.
