Paper Abstract

Lead (Pb2+) and copper (Cu2+) ions are very common pollutants in water which have dangerous potential causing serious disease and health problems to human. The aim of this paper is to determine lead and copper ions in aqueous solution using direct UV detection without chemical reagent waste. This technique allow the determination of lead and copper ions from range 0.2 mg/L to 10 mg/L using UV wavelength from 205 nm to 225 nm. The method was successfully applied to synthetic sample with high performance.
