Abstract

By usingtheexperimentaldesign(DoE)technique,weoptimizedananalyticalmethodforthede- termination ofmercuryisotoperatiosbymeansofcold-vapormulticollectorICP-MS(CV-MC-ICP-MS)to provideabsoluteHgisotopicratiomeasurementswithasuitableinternalprecision.Byrunning32ex- periments, theinfluence ofmercuryandthalliuminternalstandardconcentrations,totalmeasuringtime and sample flow ratewasevaluated.MethodwasoptimizedvaryingHgconcentrationbetween2and 20 ngg1. Themodel finds outsomecorrelationswithintheparametersaffectthemeasurementspre- cision andpredictssuitablesamplemeasurementprecisionsforHgconcentrationsfrom5ngg1 Hg upwards. The methodwassuccessfullyappliedtosamplesofManilaclams(Ruditapes philippinarum) coming from theMaranoandGradolagoon(NEItaly),acoastalenvironmentaffectedbylongtermmercury contamination mainlyduetominingactivity.Resultsshowdifferentextentsofbothmassdependent fractionation (MDF)andmassindependentfractionation(MIF)phenomenainclamsaccordingtotheir size andsamplingsitesinthelagoon.Themethodis fit fordeterminationsonrealsamples,allowingfor the useofHgisotopicratiostostudymercurybiogeochemicalcyclesincomplexecosystems.
