Abstract
A reaction between germanium (Ge) and the ligand, o-chlorophenylfluorone (o-CPF) has been carried out. The reaction sensitive at pH 4.5 in the presence of triton x-100 was selective in the presence of EDTA. The spectral correction technique was applied to the analysis of the reaction instead of single wavelength spectrophotometry because the absorption of excess of o-CPF was not negligible. An updated determination of the properties of the Ge(IV)-o-CPF complex is given, which involved the complex ratio, stepwise absorptivity and stability constant of the complex. In present work, the results show that the complex Ge(o-CPF)₃was formed and its cumulative stability constant was 1.09 ×1016 . For sample analysis, the detection limit of germanium was 0.01 mg/L, and the recoveries were between 96.4% and 102%, with relative standard deviations of less than 6.5%.
