Abstract: In this work, the complexation of aluminium (III) with 3-[4-(dimethylamino)cinnamoyl]-4-hydroxy-6-methyl-3,4-2H-pyran-2-one (ligand) in the presence of fluoride using an optical probe for absorbance measurement was studied. It was adjusted that the complex was formed in the molar ratio (Al–Lig)3 to F 1:1. The reaction was applied to determine of fluoride. The optimum conditions were achieved at pH 8 with concentrations of Al3+ and ligand 6.75 and 0.195 mg L−1, respectively. Under optimized conditions, the calibration curve showed good linearity (r = –0.9976) in the range 0.23–1.9 mg L−1 of fluoride. The limit of detection of fluoride was found to be 0.02 mg L−1. The proposed method was applied for determination of fluoride concentration in mineral water samples and fully automated by sequential injection system.
