Centri-voltammetry is a novel method, which allows combining the advantages of centrifugation and voltammetry. The method offers a practical way for application of coprecipitation in trace analysis allowing direct voltammetric scan hence prevents the loss of the analyte, which Usually is the case for other preconcentration techniques. The performance of the method Was Successfully tested using trace amounts of pb(2+) ions in aqueous Solution in a vessel specially designed to be compatible to both centrifugation and voltammetry. XAD-7 resin was used as the carrier material and the parameters related to the carrier material and medium characteristics as well as the centrifugation settings were investigated. The sensitivity of the method was found comparable to that of stripping techniques and the detection limit for lead ions was calculated as 5.2 x 10(-9) M with mercury coated gold sphere electrode. The precision of the method depends on the configuration of the working electrode and better reproducibility was obtained with mercury coated plate electrodes (R.S.D. 3.3%, n = 6).
