A simple and selective method for the determination of cadmium ions in environmental samples by ICP-AES after solid-phase extraction was developed. The method is based on the sorption of Cd2+ ions on alumina modi ed by 1-((5-nitrofuran- 2-yl)) thiosemicarbazide (NFMTC) at pH of 6. The metal ..........
