Determination of Metals(Ca,Mg) and Non-metal(P) in Stones of a Anbar patients west of Iraq by Atomic Absorption Spectrometer(AAS) Technique

Authors(1) :-Hussian Hassan Kharnoob

Renal stone is a one common disease of urinary system and rarely studies about it. Therefore the aim of this research is to determine chemical compositions of stones using qualitative method and quantitative method to detect calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus ions. Forty three calculi (14 from female percentage 32.6% and 29 of male percentage 67.4%) were examined using visible spectroscopy method at different wave length for different elements while chemical qualitative tests were used for qualitative determine compositions of stone. The analytical quantitative methods used for determination the concentration of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus ions were accurate reliable and sensitive with standard deviation 0.004596, 0.00239, and 0.000756 for calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus ions respectively. Low detection limit (L.O.D.) were0.112, 0.0177, and 0.189 mg/dl for calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus ions respectively while the (RSD) were 1.4%, 2.36%, and 5.04% for calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus ions respectively.
