Abstract

Low temperature GC on-line coupled with an ICP/MS has been used as analytical device to detect organometallic and -metalloid compounds from various sediments of rivers and harbours in West Germany. The different species have been volatilized by derivatization with NaBH4 and cryofocussed in a trap. Different alkylated species of As, Sn and Sb have been identified, while only methylated compounds of the elements Ge, Se, Te, Hg and Bi could be detected.
