Recebido em 13/1/99; aceito em 23/4/99 CONSTRUCTION OF A FLOW CELL FOR MEASUREMENTS BY SOLID-PHASE SPECTRO-PHOTOMETRY. A simple and low cost flow cell is proposed for measurements by solid-phase spectrophotometry employing a conventional spectrophotometer. The flow cell geometry allows the employment of a large amount of the solid support without causing both excessive attenuation of the radiation beam and increasing of the back-pressure. The adaptation of the flow cell in the optical path of

The flow cell characteristics were demonstrated by measurements of Co(II), employing 1-(2-tiazolylazo)-2-naphthol (TAN) immobilized on C 18 bonded silica as solid support. The apparent molar absorptivity and coefficient of variation were estimated as 1.86 x 10 5 L mol -1 cm -1 and 1.4 % (n=15). A sample throughput of 40 determinations per hour and a detection limit of 15 µg L -1 (99.7 % confidence level) were achieved.
