A critical review of the main developments in instrument technology, calibration, and sample preparation that have made it possible to determine low sulfur concentrations in fuels followed by a discussion of strategies to minimize spectral interferences related to sulfur determination by ICP-MS, such as collision–reaction cells, high-resolution mass analyzers, and the interference standard method.

Conventional pneumatic nebulizer-spray chamber combinations for ICP spectrometry have a sample introduction efficiency of only 1-3%. A unique electrothermal vaporization device developed by Vassili Karanassios of the University of Waterloo uses field-portable rhenium filament coils with a very small vaporization chamber and increases the sample introduction efficiency to 100%.

Triple-quadrupole inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) can operate in MS-MS mode, which offers the potential to improve the removal of spectral interferences compared to conventional quadrupole ICP-MS with a collision–reaction cell, or high-resolution ICP-MS.
