ABSTRACT
A simple and reproducible analytical method for determination of Antimony trioxide (ATO) is proposed, atomic absorption method was used. A simple quantitative extraction method is also proposed to extract ATO from textile backecoated sample. The proposed method is applied to determine the ATO in two different type of backcoated textile; type A contains ATO/ Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) and type B contain ATO/ Decabromodyphenyl Ether (DBDE). A complete validation method for both extraction and analytical method is discussed. Linear calibration curve in range of 5 to 220 ng with detection limit of 5 ng
