Event Overview:

Laboratories conducting elemental analyses of petroleum products refer to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) method D8110-17 which describes a procedure for the determination of a few trace elements in light and middle distillate petroleum products using inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). However, there are certain challenges that come with analyzing petroleum products. Carbon-based spectral interferences on several analytes of interest, for example, can lead to false analytical results. This webinar will review key ICP-MS technological advancements that make it easy to overcome these common challenges.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the challenges involved in the analysis of light petroleum products, such as naphtha, and how the NexION® 2200 ICP-MS overcomes these challenges, particularly in dealing with spectral interferences and high carbon content.
  • Comprehend the application scope of the ASTM method D8110-17 and the specific elements it focuses on in the analysis of distillate products, including the significance of internal standard response assessment for ensuring accurate results.
  • Gain insights into the advanced capabilities of the NexION® 2200 ICP-MS, including its unique features like the SMARTintro™ sample introduction system and LumiCoil™ load coil, along with its ability to handle sophisticated elemental analysis through various modes, such as Mass Shift and MS/MS.
