The cloud point extraction (CPE) of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) by Triton X-114 allows chromium (III) ions to be transferred to the surfactant-rich phase, where they can be measured by electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry. Using 20mL sample and 50μL Triton X-114 (30% w/v), the enrichment factor was 1150, and calibration graphs were obtained in the 5-100ngL(-1) chromium range in the presence of 5µgL(-1) AgNPs. Speciation of trivalent and hexavalent chromium was achieved by carrying out two CPE experiments, one of them in the presence of ethylenediaminetetraacetate. While in the first experiment, in absence of the complexing agent, the concentration of total chromium was obtained, the analytical signal measured in the presence of this chemical allowed the chromium (VI) concentration to be measured, being that of chromium (III) calculated by difference. The reliability of the procedure was verified by using three standard reference materials before applying to water, beer and wine samples. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
