COSTA, Antonio Carlos Saraiva da; ALMEIDA, Vitor de Cinque; LENZI, Ervim  and  NOZAKI, Jorge. Determination of copper, aluminum, and iron in basaltic soils by sequential extractions. Quím. Nova [online]. 2002, vol.25, n.4, pp.548-552. ISSN 0100-4042.

Copper, aluminum and iron concentrations were determined in four geochemical fractions of three different basaltic soils from the northwest region of the Parana State, Brazil. The fractions examined were the reducible manganese dioxide and amorphous iron oxide, crystaline iron oxide, organic and residual. Metal concentrations were determined in the extracts by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry. High Fe concentrations were extracted from the crystalline iron oxide (>20%), as well as the amorphous iron oxide (>12%). Copper was extracted from the amorphous and crystalline iron oxides in the range 5 to 12%, but low concentrations were bound to organic matter. Low concentrations of aluminum were extracted (<8%) from the amorphous and crystaline iron oxides, and organic matter. High concentrations of aluminum were found in the residual fraction.

Keywords : sequential extractions; basaltic soils; atomic absorption spectrophotometry.
