Solid phase extraction using a mini cartridge packed with 22 mg of chelate resin immobilizing carboxymethylated pentaethylenehexamine was successfully utilized for separation/preconcentration of cadmium in water samples prior to liquid electrode plasma atomic emission spectrometric (LEP-AES) determination. The combined method with the extraction and LEP-AES was applicable to the determination of cadmium in the certified reference materials (EU-L-1 wastewater and ES-L-1 groundwater); the detection limit was 0.20 μg in 200 mL of sample solution (500-fold preconcentration).
