Reductive Precipitation

Meaning, Term, and Glossary Definition - What is Reductive Precipitation?

This procedure incorporates a chemical separation to remove interfering matrix components so final analysis can be performed using inductively coupled plasma-mass spectroscopy (ICP-MS). The separation utilizes reduction of certain target analytes to the elemental state and precipitation of others as the boride depending on reduction potentials and/or boride solubility. The precipitation is facilitated using elemental palladium and iron boride as carriers. Once separated from the seawater matrix via centrifugation, the precipitate is re-dissolved and analyzed using ICP-MS.
