ICP-MS measurement (wide) for water samples
Determination of Be, Ba, Co, Al, Mg, Cu, Li, Mn, Ag, Sn, Ti, V, Zn, Tl, B, Hg, Mo, Fe, Ca, K, U, P, Cd, Na, Cr, Ni, Pb, Sb, As, and Se in water samples with ICP-MS-technique.
The sample is homogenized and acidified (HNO3), after which the analysis is performed from the liquid phase.
The analysis is suitable for natural waters. If the sample contains a lot of solids or the matrix is significantly different from natural water (for example waste and industrial waters), this method should not be used.
The concentration of each element is reported in µg/l.
