Abstract:

This study deals with the use of three different analytical methods for the determination of mercury in coals: (a) double gold amalgamation, flameless atomic absorption, (b) neutron activation and (c) combustion–solution, flameless atomic absorption. Ten coal samples of varying rank were analyzed and comparisons are drawn between the various analytical procedures. The distribution of mercury in coals is discussed briefly.
