ABSTRACT

Asphaltite derives from petroleum origin solid fossil fuel [1]. It contains valuable elements such as chromium, thallium molybdenum, uranium etc. Chromium and thallium are very important elements both environmental and health. Chromium has an important role in the metabolism. It keeps the blood sugar level in balance. It balances the level of cholesterol. Thallium and its compounds are toxic for humans even at low doses. Poisoning causes death or permanent nervous system disorders.
The development of precise and easy determination method for the metals in fuel is essential solving problems due to existence of metals in fuel [2-3].
The aim of this research is to investigate the elemental and proximate analysis of asphaltite samples. In addition, the Chromium, Thallium elements were analyzed by ICP-OES in the asphaltite from Harbul (Sirnak), SE Anatolia-Turkey. Because, Harbul has 25.765.000 tons asfaltite reserves, approximately. It is very important, too. In addition, it can be seen that the proposed ICP-OES procedure is the most simple and reliable analytical method for the elemental analysis of asphaltite due to its high selectivity and low interference problems.

Keywords: Asphaltite, Chromium, Thallium, ICP-OES
