A simple and applied method based on O-3-Tert-butylphenyl N-(6-methoxy-2-pyridyl)-N-methylthiocarbamate (Pyributicarbamate; TBMPMTC) was used for arsenic speciation (AsIII and AsV) in urine and water samples by dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) procedure. The concentrations of arsenic in the liquid phase were determined by hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry in the presence of flame accessory (HG-AAS). By procedure, a mixture of ionic liquid (0.1 g,

The task-specific ionic liquid (TSIL) of 1-3-aminopropyl)-3-methyl-imidazoliumhexafluorophosphate [APMIM][PF6] was chemically synthesized and used for increasing of As(V) extraction in the liquid phase. As(III) was extracted based on the sulfur bond of pyributicarbamate at pH=5.3. As (V) can be extracted by amine group of TBMPMTC and [APMIM][PF6] at pH=3.0 (As(V) --- : NH2). The influence of parameters was studied.
