The abundance of Au, Pt, Pd, and the mode of heavy metal fixation in highly polluted sediments from the Rhine river near Mainz, West Germany



The abundance of Au, Pt, Pd, and the mode of heavy metal fixation in highly polluted sediments from the Rhine river near Mainz, West Germany



International Journal of Environmental Studies 22(2): 109-119



The Au, Pt and Pd contents of the sediments of the Ginsheimer-Altrhine River, a channel of the Rhine which drains one of the most industrialized regions of western Europe, have been determined by flameless atomic absorption spectrophotometry. The abundance of these noble metals ranges from 96 to 460 ppb Au; 734 ppb to 31 ppm Pt and 32 ppb to 4 ppm Pd.
