2-(3- indolyl) - 4,5 di phynyl imidazole(IDPI), was used as a complexing agent in cloud point extraction for the first time and applied for selective pre-concentration of trace amounts of Aluminium. The method is based on the extraction of Aluminium at pH 3.5 by using non-ionic surfactant T-X114 and 2-(3- indolyl) - 4,5 di phenyl imidazole.(IDPI) as a chelating agent. The adopted concentrations for IDPI, Triton X-114 and HNO3, bath temperature, centrifuge rate and time were optimized. Linearity for Al was obeyed in the range of Al3+ ion 0.2-20.0 ng mL-1. The Detection Limit (n=10) 0.013(µg.mL-1) for Aluminium ion, and along with enrichment factor of 37 for Aluminium ion, RSD % (n=5) 1.3(µg.mL-1) for Aluminium ion was achieved. The high efficiency of cloud point extraction to carry out the determination of analytes in complex matrices was demonstrated. The proposed method was successfully applied to the ultra-trace determination of aluminium in real samples.
