Ultimately, lanthanum nitrate solution is produced when the PH of the solution reached 2.
Briefly, 20 ul of sample, working standards and quality control standards contain lanthanum nitrate (10 ml of lanthanum nitrate for 100 ml of sample solution; 1 ml of lanthanum nitrate contain 50 mg of lanthanum) were injected into the furnace with continuous purge gas (Argon) on a Perkin-Elmer AAnalyst 700 atomic absorption spectrometer.
For CaO and MgO determination, 10 mL of the sample solution was pipetted into a 100 mL calibrated flask followed by the addition of 4 mL of lanthanum nitrate solution and the mixture was diluted to the mark with distilled water.
