Here, a simple/efficient analytical strategy based on dispersive solid phase extraction was developed using CoSn(OH)6 nanocubes for lead ions from environmental water samples by FAAS (flame atomic absorption spectrometry). CoSn(OH)6 was synthesized as an adsorbent using the co-precipitation method and characterized. The characterization studies proved the cube-shaped morphology and uniform size distribution. The optimal experimental conditions were found by optimization studies and, the limit of quantification (LOQ), limit of detection (LOD), linear dynamic range were recorded as 37.6 μg/L, 11.3 μg/L, and 40–600 μg/L, respectively. The enhancement factor of the presented method was calculated as 158.7-folds compared to the LOD of the conventional FAAS system. Recovery experiments were performed to check the method's applicability/accuracy and the percent recovery results varied from 89.0 % to 112.9 %. According to these findings, the developed method was successfully applied for the quantitative determination of the target analyte in a seawater sample matrix.
