Determinations of Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn were performed in an oxisol soil treated with effluent originated from a biodigester septic cesspool. The extracts were obtained from a DTPA/TEA (pH 7.3) solution and analysed by electroanalytical methodologies using square wave anodic stripping voltammetry (SWASV) for the analysis of Cu, Mn and Zn and square wave voltammetry (SWV) for Fe analysis, both of them with a thin mercury film microelectrode (ME-Hg). DTPA (diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid) complexes with Cu, Mn and Fe show electroactivity in the potentials range close to the ones for the free ions in solution, but the Zn complex did not show any electroactivity at the potential range analysed. SWASV/ME-Hg and SWV/ME-Hg results were in good agreement (r2 = 0.996) with the flame atomic absorption spectroscopy (FAAS) analyses, demonstrating that electroanalytical methodologies can be used for micronutrient determinations in soil extracts without serious interferences of the matrix components. Some characteristics of the complex formed between DTPA-metals are explored by EPR experiments.
