Ali Moghimi, Syede Zahra Mirzeinali, Zeinab Mirzeinali

A simple, highly sensitive, accurate and selective method for determination of trace amounts of Ni2+in water
samples .In this paper, chitosan grafted with graphene oxide sheets showed an increased surface area was used to encapsulate nano-Fe3O4 and produce a nano-Fe3O4-encapsulated-chitosan/graphene oxide sorbent based new sorbent was prepared. Flame atomic absorption spectrometer was utilized for determination of Ni2+.Some of the important parameters on the preconcentration and complex formation was selected and optimized. Under the optimized conditions the limit of detection (LOD) and limit of quantification (LOQ)were 0.30,0.750 and the proposedmethodhas a good reproducibility 0.90% (RSD %).The enrichment factor was 200 and the percentage of recovery was in the range of 95-100% .The method was successfully applied to the recovery of Ni2+in different type of water samples. Graphene oxide and its derivates such as magnetic nano-Fe3O4-encapsulated-chitosan/graphene oxide in this studyis full of potential to use as an excellent adsorbent in the extraction method like solid phase extraction(SPE) and solid phase micro extraction(SPME).In the present study, we report the application of preconcentration techniques still continues increasingly for trace metal determinations by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) for quantification of Ni2+ in Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues from Liver loggerhead turtles. This method exhibits the superiority in compared to the other adsorption reagents because of the fact that there is no necessity of any complexing reagent and optimum pH of solution presents in acidic media.

Entomology and Applied Science Letters is an international peer reviewed publication which publishes scientific research & review articles related to insects that contain information of interest to a wider audience, e.g. papers bearing on the theoretical, genetic, agricultural, medical and biodiversity issues. Emphasis is also placed on the selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance. Papers on non-insect groups are no longer accepted. In addition to full-length research articles and reviews, the journal publishes interpretive articles in a Forum section, Short Communications, and Letters to the Editor. The journal publishes reports on all phases of medical entomology and medical acarology, including the systematics and biology of insects, acarines, and other arthropods of public health and veterinary significance.

Call for Papers
Entomology and Applied Science Letters supports the submission of entomological papers that contain information of interest to a wider reader groups e. g. papers bearing on taxonomy, phylogeny, biodiversity, ecology, systematic, agriculture, morphology. The selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance is also important. Distinguished entomologists drawn from different parts of the world serve as honorary members of the Editorial Board. The journal encompasses all the varied aspects of entomological research. This has become the need felt in scientific research due to the emphasis on intra-, inter-, and multi-disciplinary approach.
