Determination of Aluminium in Water through Formation of Fluorescent Dibenzoylmethane-Aluminium Complex and its Structure Elucidation


Journal Article

Dibenzoylmethane(DBM) was found to be a very good reagent for AlIIIto produce a luminescent complex having the formula Al(DBM)3. The luminescence property of the complex was used to selectively quantify AlIIIon filter paper substrate in the range of 5-55 ppm. The method was successfully applied to water analysis and is devoid of interferences from common anions and cations.
