Biodiesel fuel is easily analyzed using the Prodigy7 ICP. The detection limit of Teledyne Leeman Lab’s Prodigy7 ICP-OES readily exceeds the requirements of the ASTM D-6751 Standard against which biodiesel must be measured. Samples are easily prepared by dilution with a suitable solvent. Sample spike recoveries and reference standards results indicate that the method is suitable for the analysis of biodiesel fuels and that matrix interferences are not an issue.
