|Abstract: ||A procedure for sample digestion based on focused microwave-induced combustion (FMIC) is proposed. This system was developed using a commercial focused microwave oven with a lab-made quartz sample holder and
a modified glass vessel. Oxygen flow was used to start and support the combustion. A botanical sample was used to evaluate the operational conditions for further Al, Ba, Ca,Fe, Mg, Mn, Sr, and Zn determination by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry. Pelletized
samples were positioned on the quartz holder, and 50 μL of 6 mol L-1 NH4NO3 solution was added as igniter.
Combustion was completed in less than 2 min, and the temperature was higher than 950 °C. The use of a reflux step, the position of sample holder inside the vessel, sample mass, ignition and combustion time,
oxygen flow rate, and condenser type were evaluated. Results were compared with those obtained by focused
microwave-assisted wet digestion and by high pressure microwave-assisted wet digestion. Agreement of 95-103% was obtained for certified reference materials
digested by FMIC (reflux step with 10 mL of 4 mol L-1 HNO3). With the proposed procedure, a complete sample decomposition (residual carbon content lower
than 0.5%) was achieved with low consumption of reagents as only 10 mL of diluted nitric acid was necessary. Low relative standard deviation (lower than 3.8%) was observed and high amount of sample (up to 1500 mg) could be digested that allowed lower limits of detection.|
