Inorganic Processes

Solvent extraction, ion exchange, volatilization and precipitation are the most commonly used separation approaches for trace elemental analysis. Inorganic preparation schemes generally follow a flow diagram, as shown in Figure 1.

The processes by which extraction of inorganic compounds occur using organic solvents are varied and may be relatively involved. Consequently, attempts to classify inorganic extraction processes are difficult. Attempts have been made, based on the identity of the extracted compound, or of the extracting agent, or pH of the extraction solution. For the purposes of this chapter, a simple subdivision will be adopted based on the extraction reagent used.
