English Abstract

Twelve trace elements including calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, manganese, zinc, iron, copper, lead, nickel, cadmium and chrome in Aloe barbadensis Mill were determined by flame atomic aborsorption spectrometry. The aloe has been irrigated for three years with seawater of different concentrations. Results indicated that the content of the twelve kind elements was different. The content of calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium was high; the content of manganese, zinc and iron was medium; and the content of copper, lead, nickel, cadmium and chrome was low in Aloe barbadensis Mill. The concentration of seawater had great influence on the content of calcium and manganese, while this influence was minor on other elements. A slight increase of cadmium in gel and whole leaf of Aloe barbadensis Mill was observed with higher seawater concentration.
