Using this method, complete elemental recovery and removal of organic matrices can be achieved safely and up to 57 elements can be determined in oils with good accuracy and precision. The removal of organic matrices during digestion helps limit the formation of polyatomic spectral interferences and also improves instrument stability.

Annemie Bogaerts and Maryam Aghaei of the University of Antwerp, Belgium, are carrying out computational modeling to examine how various properties of the ICP, such as gas flow path lines and ionization effects, are affected by various factors—such as gas flow rates, applied power, and even the very presence of a mass spectrometry sampler. Using their developed model, one can predict optimum conditions for specific analyses.

Inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is a powerful analytical technique. But like any other analytical techniques, there are challenges involved. We recently asked ICP-MS experts what unresolved problems exist—especially with samples in complex matrices—and how ICP-MS methods or technologies can be developed to attack them.
