Abstract

Results demonstrated that these membranes are capable of binding adequate Fe to produce measurable shifts in the UV-VIS and have a theoretical detection limit of 0.24 nM Fe. This detection limit is suitable for the quantification of Fe in coastal waters and further optimization is suggested to enhance the detection limit for use in measuring iron in open ocean surface waters.
