ABSTRACT

 

Heavy metal contaminated soil can be long term environmental concern. Hence, the assessment of heavy metal in contaminated soil has received much attention in present scenario. Electrochemical analysis is a reliable and cost effective method to evaluate toxicity of heavy metal in soil. In the present work the analysis was based on well planed sampling strategy appropriate selection and implementation of Electrochemical Sensor. For the determination of heavy metal the cadmium electrochemical sensor and lead electrochemical sensor were used.
The present study was carried out to observe the concentration and toxic effect of cadmium and lead in contaminated soil. Cadmium ion concentration was 1.2- 1.3

 

Keywords : Ion selective electrode, Sensors, Heavy metals, Contaminated soil.
