Simultaneous preconcentration extraction by trioctylmethylammonium chloride (TOMA•Cl) for the determination of trace amounts of twelve elements (Bi(III), Cd(II), Co(II), Cu(II), Fe(II), Hg(II), Mo(VI), Pb(II), Sb(III), Sn(II), V(V), Zn(II)) in natural water samples is described. A water sample containing 0.3mol dm-3 HCl, 0.1mol dm-3 KI, 0.1mol dm-3 KSCN, and 0.01mol dm-3 ascorbic acid was shaken with 2%(w/v) TOMA•Cl in xylene with a volume ratio (Vaq/Vorg) of 100. After preconcentration extraction, the organic phase was directly introduced into inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry. Twelve elements could be determined at the μg dm-3 or ng dm-3 level. Some natural water samples as well as standard reference material were analyzed by the proposed method. The results were highly satisfactory.
