Analytical procedures for determining of pollutants in the environment are known and

Recognized as standard analytical procedures, however, determining individual compounds

The analyst’s instrumentation.

Common difficulties for the analytical chemist include:

  • Natural samples are complex mixtures so the sample preparations should be specific to sample media and targeted substance.
  • Concentrations may have to be intensified.
  • Many natural chemical events act as interferons,
  • Requirement to know the law where the findings maybe used in a prosecution

Substances Used

Analytical practice will be done in the first instance with non-harmful substances and then

Controlled quantities of harmful substances commonly found in the environment using a

Selection of different matrixes; these include:

  • Heavy metals
